Windows 7: VB App cannot send email in W7, OK in XP

28 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 32
VB App cannot send email in W7, OK in XP

I have a VB app that sends an email. It works OK in Windows XP, but in Windows 7, I get the message "Failure sending mail.". The problem must be in the SMTP server setup, although I tried to use the same parameters as in XP.

Instructions on the internet tell me to setup SMTP in IIS Manager, but SMTP is only under ASP.NET, not IIS. In ASP.NET/SMTP, I have the SMTP server set to localhost and the port to 25.

Please help.
