    In mY webSite hosted in JodoHost Im using a JMAIL component to my ASP can send mails.

    Im using as SMTP SERVER mail.my-domain.com

    Ok, It's works ! But seveal times a error occureres in my ASP Application like "Cant find smtp server"

    Probally cuz Im using a DNS with a external IP Address and sometimes the DNS Fails or internal gateway can fail also.

    So, can I use a IP Address less subject to fail ?

    I think you can use mail.jodoshared.com. Your domain that is hosted on JodoHost should already be set up to point mail.YourDomainHostedWithJodoHost.com to the same server that mail.jodoshared.com points to anyway. I think they have been having a little intermittent trouble with the mail server at JodoHost which could explain the trouble with your scripts.

    Well....This error occured several times.

    Maybe SMTP server is Ok, But DNS maybe not.

    I will try to use IP Address instead DNS name and what the results !

    Thanx, Buddy !

    No, if you're using jmail, use "localhost" as the mail server.

    Thanks Logan, sorry to be naive, but what is 'local host' - my domain?

    "localhost" refers to the server on which the script is running.
