    Unanswered: CDO and sending to external address

    To All--

    I'm hoping that some one has already dealt with this and can give me a hand.

    I'm using CDO to automate sending emails. Everything works fine when sending to addresses within the company's domain. However, when I try to send to another address outside the domain, say someone@gmail.com, I get a 550 Cannot Relay error.

    Does anyone know the correct way to configure CDO to get this to work? Thanks.

    It's not CDO that needs configuring, it's your smtp server. If it's not setup to allow relay, you're going to get the kabosh.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Teddy--

    Thanks for the response...luckily I was able to find an email server in the company that did allow relay and everything seems to be working now.
