    Yes!
    This is perfectly possible. Outlook Express, also uses -the same- component.

    Hi Egbert...

    Can you shed some light on where I can find doentation on this? It is my
    understanding that Exchange would have to be on the same server and I had
    hoped this was not a requirement. I cannot find any definitive information
    anywhere.

    That's not correct. As I said, CDO is installed on for instance XP, and I
    have -no- Exchange on my system. Outlook Express uses CDO to post and to
    read messages.
    But as soon as you install Exchange on a server, it will replace the
    original CDO and add additional functionailty, that you don't need to
    imitate 'outlook express'.

    About doentation, it's not fully doented but not impossible to find
    out. The typelibrary is very extended and if you get comfortable using that
    API, you also easy can post and read from NNTP servers.

    Thanks for responding but this appears to be VB, not VBScript to be used
    with ASP. I made some modifications and I got it working but it still needs
    some work and now I need to find out how to get the messages and display
    them and then write my interface.

    Here is what I have currently. I posted this message in the test area.

    .Item(cdoNNTPServer) = "msnews.microsoft.com"
    .Item(cdoNNTPServerPort) = 119
    .Item(cdoNNTPConnectionTimeout) = 10
    .Update
    End With

    .Post
    End With

    Set Fields = Nothing
    Set Msg = Nothing
    Set Cfg = Nothing

    End Sub

    I posted another message after this, after I modified my .From and it went
    to the same thread. Do you know if this is based on the subject?

    Hints:

    1) Don't declare all variables over and over... Save yourself the headache
    of copying them...
    add a metatag to global.asa

    (at first line in global.asa)
    <!--METADATA TYPE="TypeLib" NAME="Microsoft CDO for Windows 2000 Library"
    UUID="{CD000000-8B95-11D1-82DB-00C04FB1625D}" VERSION="1.0"-->
    2) Use CreateObject instead of Server.CreateObject (which is a legacy method
    and slower)


    I was wrong to suggest that CDOSYS also reads NNTP servers, it only writes
    to
    them and it can format your message nicely and easily.
    Basically, this would mean that you need an alternative to directories and
    messages data from NTTP. As soon as you have a message, you load the message
    using ADODB.Stream and load them with a message object. CDO will
    automatically categorize and interprete the message from the stream.

    An alternative?


    I've several things to read news messages and have run into a flurry of
    problems:
    1. My host says they support AspNNTP but the component is not loaded.
    2. I tried using an NNTP reader written in .NET C#. It returns with errors.
    3. I found there was a DYNU TCPSocket compnent loaded, so I tried using that
    since I can telnet to the news server and issue the commands I want:

    listgroup microsoft.public.inetserver.asp.general
    head 272506
    body 272506
    ....

    The component connects but then says the trial period has ended.

    I'm not having much luck. I've searched for hours on the net to find

    Check to see if your host has IP*Works! (they probably do) - it
    contains an NNTP object.

    Thanks Lance. Unfortunately it's not loaded but I'm working on getting them
    to install AspNNTP. Sometimes the first time I talk to support I get
    someone that I cannot understand at all.

    I told them since this was on the list of components they advertise as
    having on the server, I would like to have it installed so I could use it.
    It says the trial period has expired.

    Their response was, it's there and it's a free component so it expires after
    30 days. Let us know if you need to use it and we'll install it.

    WTFO? (O:= Obviously there will be follow up correspondence.

    They'll have a problem if you share your server with more clients, another
    client uses the same COM component while you paid for it :)

    Here's some free, debugged source code:
    [url]http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/WebTechniques/col62.html[/url]

    To use it, you must install Perl on your IIS server. Visit
    [url]http://www.activestate.com/[/url] for news.
    Download "ActivePerl", a version of Perl for Windows at:
    [url]http://activestate.com/Products/ActivePerl/[/url]

    Once you do that, you've got access to far more capability than ASP
    alone can give you. See the astonishing variety of freely-available
    Perl modules at [url]http://search.cpan.org/[/url]

    Thanks for the links Michael. Perl is already installed.

    Hi Egbert...

    My point was I said, "I need this" and they already promote it is a
    component they offer with my hosting service. However, the response from
    support was, "Let us know if you need this and we'll install it" I don't
    think they're asking me to pay for it. I think they just put on the trials
    and wait until someone asks for the full version to be installed.
