<%
sendUrl="http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing"
smtpUrl="http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver"


' Set the mail server configuration
Set objConfig=CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
objConfig.Fields.Item(sendUrl)=2 ' cdoSendUsingPort
objConfig.Fields.Item(smtpUrl)="relay-hosting.secureserver.net"
objConfig.Fields.Update


' Create and send the mail
Set objMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
' Use the config object created above
Set objMail.Configuration=objConfig
objMail.From="sender@coolexample.com"
objMail.ReplyTo="sender@coolexample.com"
