You're not getting the form info into the variables, so the 'From' field was
empty, and now the other form fields are still empty.

Try assigning the form fields to variables, then using the variables in the
mail function. Also, write the variables to the browser to see if you're
getting the expected values.

Like this:

Dim objMail, strFrom, strSubject, strTo, strBody
strFrom = "info at 24caratdesign.com"
strSubject = "Message from The Chocolate Foundry"
strTo = "sfmalo at 24caratdesign.com"
strBody = "Sent by: " & Request.Form("name") & vbCrlf & vbCrlf

Response.Write("strFrom = " & strFrom & "<br />")
Response.Write("strSubject = " & strSubject & "<br />")
Response.Write("strTo = " & strTo & "<br />")
Response.Write("strBody = " & strBody & "<br />")

set objMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
objMail.From = strFrom
objMail.Subject =  strSubject
objMail.To =  strTo
objMail.Body = strBody
set objMail = nothing

Let me know if the form values aren't making it to the mail page, and we'll
figure out why.
