I got a question from Bradley J. Dinerman about getting Aspmail working on Windows Server 2008. I’ve yet to figure out how to get AspEmail working on Windows Server 2008, I tried x64 and x86 of Windows Server 2008. I got the following error. Process monitor and enabling auditing didn’t turn up anything.
- error ‘800703e6’
- /asp.asp, line 8
- Line 8 is the Set mailer = Server.Createobject(“SMTPsvg.Mailer”)
Brad mentioned he was getting an error trying to switch to CDOSYS. Here is the error. The error for CDOSYS is: ASP_LOG_ERROR LineNumber 7 ErrorCode 80070005 Description Access is denied The problem ended up being the anonymous user didn’t have write permissions on the c:inetpubmailrootpickup folder. I thought I would pass this along as an FYI.
Two things to configure on the SMTP Service (At least I do)
- Configure appropriate (write) permissions on c:inetpubmailrootpickup
- Configure 127.0.0.1 to allow to be relayed Internet Manager 6 > SMTP Virtual Server > Properties > Access Tab > Relay Restrictions > Relay button > Click Add and type 127.0.0.1
‘Link Brad passed along
Thanks Brad for passing along the post and solution.
