Q. Can I Use CDOSYS Email Component with News Manager?

A. Yes, you can use CDOSYS with News Manager by following these steps:

  1. Open the file "applications/NewsManager/components/inc_sendtofriendmanager_CDOSYS.asp" and go to line 23
  2. Change the smtp server name from "" to YOUR smtp server name (If you don't know your SMTP server name, contact your webhost):

    • cdoConfig.Fields.Item(theSchema & "smtpserver")= ""
    • Change to: cdoConfig.Fields.Item(theSchema & "smtpserver")= "YOUR SMTP SERVER"
  3. Save the file as "inc_sendtofriendmanager.asp" and upload it to your web server.

*If you don't know your SMTP server name or have questions regarding CDOSYS, contact your webhost):


If your server requires SMTP authentication, then you will need to do the following steps as well:

  1. Go to line 23
  2. Locate the following line:
    cdoConfig.Fields.Item(theSchema & "smtpserver")= ""
  3. Below that line, add the following codes:
    cdoConfig.Fields.Item(theSchema & "sendusername") = "myusername"
    cdoConfig.Fields.Item(theSchema & "sendpassword") = "mypassword"

    * myusername = email server username from your webhosting provider
    * mypassword = email server password from your webhosting provider
    * Do not erase code: cdoConfig.Fields.Update
