CDOSYS and Windows Server 2008, 80070005 Description Access
I got a question from Bradley J. Dinerman about getting
Aspmail working on
Windows Server 2008. I've yet to figure out how to get AspEmail working on
Windows Server 2008, I tried x64 and x86 of Windows Server 2008. I got
the following error. Process monitor and enabling auditing didn't turn up
- error '800703e6'
- /asp.asp, line 8
- Line 8 is the Set mailer = Server.Createobject("SMTPsvg.Mailer")
Brad mentioned he was getting an error trying to switch to
is the error. The error for CDOSYS is: ASP_LOG_ERROR LineNumber
7 ErrorCode 80070005 Description Access is denied The
problem ended up being the anonymous user didn't have write permissions
on the c:\inetpub\mailroot\pickup folder. I thought I
would pass this along as an FYI.
Two things to configure on the SMTP Service (At least I do)
- Configure appropriate (write) permissions on c:\inetpub\mailroot\pickup
- Configure 127.0.0.1 to allow to be relayed Internet Manager 6 > SMTP Virtual
Server > Properties > Access Tab > Relay Restrictions > Relay button > Click Add
and type 127.0.0.1
'Link Brad passed along
Thanks Brad for passing along the post and solution.
