I looked back thru the thread and can't find whether you've tried it with a
hard value for the 'From' value, like this:

Dim objMail
set objMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
objMail.From = "info at 24caratdesign.com"
objMail.Subject = "Message from The Chocolate Foundry"
objMail.To = "sfmalo at 24caratdesign.com"
objMail.Body  = "Sent by: " & Request.Form("name") & vbCrlf & vbCrlf &
set objMail = nothing


I discovered with my CDONTS efforts that an invalid 'From' value will kill
the message.

No IP needed. The script understands that you're running SMTP on the same
machine as the script.

Try it with static info in the 'From' field, and if that doesn't fly, try it
with static info for the 'Body' as well, although that shouldn't affect it.

I'll be here larnin' myself some PHP, so if you get thru these steps and
have some feedback, I'll see what I can do to help.
