Try this instead...

As per your suggestion I tried:

    Set objCDO      = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    Set objCDOConfig  = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
    Set objFields    = objCDOConfig.Fields
    With objFields
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = ""
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
      .Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/SendUsing") = 2
    End With
    With objCDO
      .Configuration  = objCDOConfig
      .To          = "tom at somewhere.com"
      .From        = "no-reply at somewhere.com"
      .Subject     = "eHandbook Contact Message"
      .TextBody    = "This is my message."
    End With
    Set objFields = Nothing
    Set objCDO = Nothing
    Set objCDOConfig = Nothing 

I for the smtp server I first tried the localhost alone at but got the same error I am
getting now, which is why I tried hitting the port this web site is set on. (92) Neither works and
I get this:

COM Error Number  	-2147220973 (0x80040213)
File Name 	/SVM1/Handbook/process-contact.asp
Line Number 	28
Brief Description 	The transport failed to connect to the server.

I'm running Server2003 and there are a few things using localhost, which I'm guessing might be my
problem. Any idea how I can troubleshoot this? Seems like it just cannot see the correct web
