Do you happen to have a sample of the code you're talking about writing; I'm
far from being a code whiz.

Thanks for your input.



I think this may all be a bit unnecessary...

CDONTS only supports creating a text file and dropping it into the local
"pickup" directory of the MS SMTP server.

If you use any other component (e.g. CDOSYS which comes from Microsoft) or a
3rd party component (e.g ASPMail, JMail or whatever GoDaddy offers you), you
can connect to any arbitrary SMTP server to send mail (subject to any
authentication requirements that the SMTP server has).

So, change over to using CDOSYS (or whatever GoDaddy offers you), and write
some code to connect to the SBS server's SMTP server. That way you can
deliver mail directly to Exchange, just like any other SMTP client/server
there on the 'net.
