Actually, I've found using CDONTS at all to be the problem. It's somewhat
notorious for having such permission problems. (The IUSR account is usually
the problem; even so, I couldn't fix it, and thus gave up on it.) My
solution was to use ASPEmail instead (http://www.aspemail.com). Its free
features are similar to CDONTS (when it's not having the above permission
problems), and it has premium features that CDONTS doesn't have, which you
can pay for if you like.

the Interest pegged at 10.)
