in reply to CDONTS.dll

This code works for me, running perl 5.6.0 on an exchange server:
use Win32::OLE; $cd = Win32::OLE->new("CDONTS.NewMail") || die $!; $cd->{From}="test\"; $cd->{To}="test\"; $cd->{Subject}="test"; $cd->{Body}="test"; $cd->Send; print Win32::OLE->LastError();
if that doesn't work try this in VB and let me know if this works:
Dim cp As Object Set cp = CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail") With cp .To = "" .From = "" .Subject = "test" .Body = "test" .Send End With
The above VB code forces VB to use the same OLE interface as Perl does.

    Bizarrely enough the perl snipet you sent me worked. I swear on a stack of Orielly books that I did exactly what you suggested last night and it didn't work. Oh well... However I spoke to our architect and he shunned CDONTS because you don't have control over the headers and footers. He suggested MIME::Lite as an alternative.

    Thanks for your help.
      There actually is a way to get control over the headers and footers, but it's not a pretty hack (plus I don't remember it off hand). Anyways, MIME::Lite is a better choice and is less system and software dependant.
