Configuring your Email system

Configuring your Email system

E-mail needs to be configured by specifying a few settings in the VP-ASP configuration. You can do this by entering the VPASP merchant administration and finding these settings under the Advanced Settings > Software Configuration > Site Details category.

The information that needs to be configured is:

xemail[email protected]
The merchant e-mail address

xemailname=Merchant name
The name of your store, this will be displayed in the 'From' part of the sent email.

xemailsubject=Shopping Cart Order
Subject of confirmation e-mail, this is the text that will be displayed in the subject line of the email

xemailsystem=mail.yoursystem.com
Your web host's e-mail system.There is no standard naming for your e-mail system. It could be smtp.abc.com.
The easiest way to find this information is to check with your NT/Windows administrator or web hosting company.
Note : If you are a VP-ASP hosting customer, you can enter value for xemailsystem as : localhost.

xemailtype=CDONTS
This is the type of email object used by your server. If you are unsure then contact your web hosting company to obtain this information.
Standard VPASP mailing interfaces include; CDONTS, ASPMAIL, ASPEMAIL, JMAIL, OCXMAIL, CDOSYS
Note : If you are a VP-ASP hosting customer, you can enter value for xemailtype as : CDOSYS.

Other ASP Interfaces
Other e-mail interfaces that are compatible with Active Server Page programs may be integrated into VP-ASP. They must be able to be called from an Active Server Page program. Normally this means that are implemented with a DLL and have a COM interface. VP-ASP cannot run EXE files.

If you want us to help integrate another interface besides these, then provide us with a working sample of Active Server Page code that works with your e-mail program.
