hi. two things in this post to the list (which i appreciate greatly.) 1. i just read an article at 15 Seconds (http://www.15seconds.com/issue/011016.htm) which describes an easy way to filter spam using keywords and a VBS file. my question to you people is, are there any other scripts like this? do you use one? how would i deregister this sort of thing if it caused undesired results? (it is registered by creating an event sink) 2. i'm looking for an article that i once read about using FSO to send email instead of the CDONTS. for example instead of creating the email through script you write a text file to an SMTP directory so that server can take care of the mail at it's own pace. as it stands now, i'm trying to send up to five emails one right after the in an .asp file. however only the first one is coming through and i think it might be because they are being fired too quickly. does anyone know what article i'm talking about? or be able to give me instructions (example) on how i can use the FSO to do this? thanks a lot. chris. p.s. are there ever any evolt-er meetings? i live and work around l.a.
