'This section provides the configuration information for the remote SMTP server.

ObjSendMail.Configuration.Fields.Update

'End remote SMTP server configuration section==

ObjSendMail.To = "someone@someone.net"
ObjSendMail.Subject = "this is the subject"
ObjSendMail.From = "someone@someone.com"

' we are sending a text email.. simply switch the comments around to send an html email instead
'ObjSendMail.HTMLBody = "this is the body"
ObjSendMail.TextBody = "this is the body"

ObjSendMail.Send

Set ObjSendMail = Nothing 
%>



Carbon Copy
ObjSendMail.CC = "user@somedomain.com"

Blind Carbon Copy
ObjSendMail.BCC = "user@somedomain.com"

Send Attachment (we hard code it here, but you could specify the file path using Server.Mappath as well)
ObjSendMail
.AddAttachment "c:\myweb\somefile.jpg"
