Unable to access ASP contact form, the following error occurs after all fields were filled:
Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 800401f3'
/asp-contact-us/asp-contact-us/contactusprocess.asp, line 36
The following is defined on line 36:
Set objNewMail = Server.CreateObject("CDONTS.NewMail")
Deprecated library CDONTS is in use.
The error means that the object could not be created because it could not find the appropriate DLL for the object requested. It is looking for the CDONTS COM component that was included with NT SP4 as the file cdont.dll.
CDONTS was deprecated in Windows 2000 and completely removed in Windows 2003. If Window 2003, Windows 2008 or Windows 2012 is in use, this error will apprear since the DLL is not present.
To fix this problem try to use CDOSYS (cdosys.dll). CDOSYS is a library file provided as part of IIS for Windows 2000, Windows 2003 Server, and Windows 2008 Server. This DLL enabled applications to route SMTP messages across multiple platforms and added much more functionality over the older CDONTS library.
