    Default CDONTS and SMTP

    I am trying to figure out how to use another SMTP server to send my mail using CDONTS. We are testing the Internet Anywhere Mail Server (, and we have been unsuccessful at getting the SMTP server to query and send the mail. Is there any way to use another SMTP server other than the Microsoft default SMTP server to send CDONTS? Thanks in advance!!!!!<BR><BR>Rob

    I think you are having the two mail services running in same port. Change the port for SMTP and check.

    You are correct... that would cause a problem, however, I have disabled MS SMTP and would solely like to run Internet Anywhere Mail Server. My question is, can I disable the Microsoft SMTP and run an entirely different mail server? Does CDONTS only work with the default MS SMTP server? So far I have been unsuccessful with getting this to work. Thanks again!

    I dare say that it will not ever work, as CDONTS stands for Colaborative Data Objects for NT Server. I am pretty sure that it will only work with MS SMTP. However, you can probably get CDO to work for your purposes. It is different than CDONTS, which is a watered down version of CDO. Check out for more info.

    Try this:<BR><BR>1. In the Internet Service Manager, open the property pages for the default SMTP site.<BR><BR>2. Choose the "Delivery" tab<BR><BR>3. In the Smart Host field, type the IP address of the server through which you want to send mail.<BR><BR>4. Choose OK.<BR><BR>This is assuming you are using IIS 4.<BR><BR>Hope this helps!
