I have an email script in asp that worked fine, but now I moved to my own windows server 2008 and can not seem to put it to work. It always gives this error:

CDO.Message.1 error '80040213'
The transport failed to connect to the server. 

This is not script error because the same page in other host works fine. It must be the server configuration. Any suggestions?

I am using:

  • windows server 2008
  • IIS 7,5

First of all what is the script using to send emails?

SMTP or E-Mail library used by .NET (like Sendmail used in PHP)

From the sound of the error message there is no SMTP available on the server. Sometimes new installs do not have this installed at all and require Exhange or SMTP modules installed.

Im using cdo with asp classic and like i said it works fine in another server, is there any way i can get a step by step to see if anything missing in config server? i set permissions for door 25 and 587 and set the smtp email in iis. – razstec May 11 '12 at 12:40
Look inside the error log of windows event viewer, there will be a detailed description.. if there is no log there then find SMTP settings and inside the properties there is a Logging Level. Set the most detailed, run the script again. Check event viewer. – ppumkin May 11 '12 at 13:44
