     You can send an Email with attachment(s) from your ASP page using CDONTS. There is some code here on planet-source-code, but it does only work on the webserver itself, because the code does NOT first upload the attachment to the WebServer. This is neccesary, because the webserver the ASP is on cannot access your harddrive and pick up the file you want to send as attachment. If you don't, you get "Unspecified Error 80004005" Make sure you have IIS with CDONTS (standard under IIS5) installed and the SMTP virtual server is running on the webserver. The magnificent code to upload a file to a webserver is from Karl P. Grear and can be found on planet-source-code (Form Based File Upload Using Pure ASP).

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
