Issues opening MS COMs through website RRS feed

  • User-2051918309 posted

    I have a site that calls an email method I created to send emails through Outlook.  When I try to run it, I get the following error:

    Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {0006F03A-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80080005

    I think the issue is with the fact that it opens Outlooks with ASPNET as the owner rather than the person logged in through Windows.  I went into the DCOM Config and followed these instructions, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Could you use SmtpClient to send email in your project?
    This is not so hard as using Outlook from ASP.NET.
