CDOSYS URL namespace... Huh? - ASP Components

I've looked all over the world (via Google) and found a few sample snippets of CDOSYS Message object.

    Default CDOSYS URL namespace... Huh?


    I've looked all over the world (via Google) and found a few sample snippets
    of CDOSYS Message object. (And even more sites that merely copy the snippet
    or make reference back to one of the originals.)

    One or two claim to be a tutorial but turns out they're nothing more than a
    listing of something that works and the phrase, "Here's a tutorial. This
    code works."

    But nobody is answering the nagging question (not even Microsoft's MSDN
    section on CDO for Windows 2000 - at least I couldn't find it)...

    What's with the URL namespace? Why are the Configuration field constants
    equated to "h**p://schemas.microsoft.com/"? How does this namespace behave?
    Has this approach been implemented in any other object?

    Am I to conclude that ASP scripts using this CDO object actually calls out
    to microsoft.com to get operational parameters? If so, then what about the
    scenario where I'm developing on a server not able to reach out to the
    Internet? This is just so bizarre as to be highly improbable.

    What's the straight poop on this?

    Yeah, they send copies to MS, haven't you heard, they are evil ;-)

    No, like you say, it's just a namespace, in MS case they use their url so it
    wont conflict with others.

    It's sort of like naming packages in Java where it was common to name it
    with your companys url in reverse and then the name, such as com.javathings.math
    or com.sun.mail

    In this case they are just variables and the url is a way to make sure they
    are unique.

    Really? If that's so, then where can I view the source code or why
    can't I change the name to something else unique for my organization ?
