Send an email with Arabic characters using SMTPsvg.Mailer
I am trying to send an email with Arabic charcters using SMTPsvg.Mailer. Is it possible?
Here is my code:
I have set the customCharSet to "windows-1256" (Arabic), but when I check the email on the recieving end, it just comes out as a bunch of ?????? symbols.
set mailObj = Server.CreateObject("SMTPsvg.Mailer")
'set mailObj = Server.CreateObject("Persits.MailSender")
mailObj.FromAddress = fromAddr
mailObj.RemoteHost = smtpServer
mailObj.ReplyTo = fromAddr
mailObj.AddRecipient "", Trim(sToAddress)
MailObj.CustomCharSet = "windows-1256"
mailObj.Subject = sSubject
'mailObj.ContentType = "text/html"
mailObj.BodyText = sBody
if not mailObj.SendMail then
SendMail = "Email send failed: " & mailObj.Response & "."
Doing a google search, I find that a lot of people seem to be using CDONTS.Newmail instead of SMTPsvg.Mailer for sending emails with Arabic, is this because it can't be done using SMTPsvg.Mailer? If so, to use CDONTS, do i need to have something installed on the server?
