[thelist] JMail reliability on classic ASP - any advice? Alternatives?

have launched an ecommerce site, which uses Dimac JMail 4.2 to send 
confirmation messages to myself, the client and the customer when an 
order is completed.

Has been working well for a couple weeks, but two customers (1 yesterday 
and 1 today) have reported the email stage failing with:

"jmail.Message error '8000ffff'
The message was undeliverable. All servers failed to receive the message"

The thing worked successfully both before and after the two occurrences 
that we know of, so it's an intermittent problem. This is on a shared 
Win 2003 server.

I have googled the error but not turned up useful information in this 
situation. Has anyone any advice for what could be causing this 

I am considering rewriting the email function to use either CDOSYS or 
ASPEmail from Persits.

Which of these would you recommend as an alternative to JMail to 
hopefully address the reliability issues?

Many thanks
