I searched through this forum to find a answer to my problem but
couldn't find it in any of the forums, so I'll describe the problem and
the solution here.

I am using ASP on SBS 2003 with IIS 6.0 and Exchange 6.5.7226.0. I have
a page where the user can submit a form to send email. I followed
Microsoft's sample code to use either CDOSYS or CDOEX, but I kept
getting error 80070005, which is an access denied message. Here's my
simple sample code:

function sendEmail(to, from, subject, body) {
var iMsg = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
iMsg.To = to
iMsg.From = from
iMsg.Subject = subject
iMsg.TextBody = body

Here's what I did to fix the problem: From the IIS Manager, right-click
Default Web Site, choose Properties, then the Home Directory tab.
Change the Application pool from DefaultAppPool to

No more error 80070005.

Hope this helps.
