Re: [davorg] How do you determine SMTP server?
[In reply to]
I do not have any control of the server my site is at, and my host only installed Blat... probably because it is an NT server and they have ASP related email programs. The script I have is all Perl, and I spent quite a long time modifying the original to fit in with my Web site. So, I do not want to redo the entire thing in ASP.
If my domain was at www.foo.com and my mail server was at mail.foo.com, I can not send out emails to users outside of the foo.com domain. I am not sure why, but I will complain to the host later on today. Even using regular email clients like Outlook, there is that same problem. On the host's help page, they tell you to use your Internet service provider's SMTP. So, I will have to investigate the mail server problem with my domain.
I had tried using my ISP's SMTP, but I still error when the domain is different than the domain of the recipient... maybe there is a relay problem with how the host setup Blat... I will ask them about this, also.
So if the script was named "myscript.cgi", there is no way to call the script and then end up on some other page like "anotherpage.asp" after the script is done processing (without using a refresh meta tag on the output page)?... meaning I will always end up on myscript.cgi after everything is finished?
Thanks again for your help Dave.
