i believe CDONTS requires a full email address -- @ and all...

however, ASPMail and ASPQMail exist on most ISPs that do NT 
hosting, and it's relatively cheap to use in-house as well... but even 
if you don't get it, CDONTS will usually do quite well on the basic 
email script... just don't count on it to be robust or fool-proof...
