    How Do I Get A System Email Sent To Me?

    I'm about to add the capability to my app for a user to submit data to a database. The data will be sort of like "sign my guestbook" level but not quite a guestbook. The data will be displayed for all to see. So I want to be sent an email that let's me know that someone submitted data so that I can see what was written almost as soon as it's written so that I can delete it, if need be. I'm using MSSQL 2008 on WinHost, ASP.NET 4.0.

    Can someone please give me a rough idea on how to do this and I'll implement it?

    Re: How Do I Get A System Email Sent To Me?

    There are several methods for this...

    #1: use the hosting servers SMTP to send the mail (Mail Pickup directory method)...
    Code:
    Dim ObjSendMail
    Dim ObjConfig
    Dim Flds
         
    ObjSendMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    ObjConfig = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
    Flds = ObjConfig.Fields
         
    Flds("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 1
         
    '----- DBL check path for mail pickup...
    Flds("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverpickupdirectory") = "c:\inetpub\mailroot\pickup"
    Flds.Update
         
    ObjSendMail.Configuration = ObjConfig
    ObjSendMail.To = "email@example.com"
    ObjSendMail.Subject = "subject"
    ObjSendMail.From = "admin@yourmail.net"
         
    'ObjSendMail.HTMLBody = "this is the body"
    ObjSendMail.TextBody = "this is the body"
         
    ObjSendMail.Send
         
    ObjSendMail = Nothing
    #2: connection directly to a remote SMTP mail server..

    Code:
    Dim ObjSendMail
    Dim ObjConfig
    Dim Flds
         
    ObjSendMail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
    ObjConfig = CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")
    Flds = ObjConfig.Fields
         
    Flds.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2 '(SMTP).
    Flds.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") ="mail.server.com"
    Flds.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25 
    Flds.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpusessl") = False 'Use SSL for the connection (True or False)
    Flds.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpconnectiontimeout") = 60
         
    ' autentication details
    Flds.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpauthenticate") = 1 'basic (clear-text) authentication
    Flds.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusername") ="yourusername"
    Flds.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendpassword") ="yourpassword"
    Flds.Update
         
    ObjSendMail.Configuration = ObjConfig
    ObjSendMail.To = "email@example.com"
    ObjSendMail.Subject = "subject"
    ObjSendMail.From = "admin@yourmail.net"
         
    'ObjSendMail.HTMLBody = "this is the body"
    ObjSendMail.TextBody = "this is the body"
         
    ObjSendMail.Send
         
    ObjSendMail = Nothing
