Hey Peter/Aleem : Thought I would combine your two questions into one email. The size of the list digest is getting rediculous, and I suppose this is my way of compressing the downloads. First off, CDO : I wrote an article on CDO comparing it and giving sample code on Evolt. Here is the link : http://www.evolt.org/article/ASP_email_made_easy_using_CDO/17/14951/index.html?cfid=824731&cftoken=33408893 (mind the wrap) Secondly, email forwarding (Aleem) : I have been using bigfoot for email forwarding since 1995. They have always been free, and although now they charge for some of their premium services, their free service cannot be beat. You'd get an address like joe at bigfoot.com, that forwards to any other account of your choosing. Another service that I have heard lots about it HotPOP.com. Although I haven't tried it personally, you might want to go ahead and give them a look. A warning about forward-email services : Some POP email providers will not allow you to send broadcast messages off their server. Broadcast messages are those that have a different reply to or sender email address than one supplied from the server. In order to use forward email services effectively, you would have to set your POP/SMTP client to use your (joe at bigfoot.com) address in the from and reply-to fields. The blocking of broadcast messages is an effort to stop unsuspecting POP/SMTP servers to be used by spammers. Check with your service provider if you plan to use their server for transmitting. Most free email services (Hotmail, Yahoo!, et. al.) don't have this restriction. Hope this helps, Regards, Burhan Khalid _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at http://explorer.msn.com/intl.asp.
