I keep getting the following error when trying to send an sms from my ASP script (code is taken directly form the samples)

IntelliSoftware.ActiveSMS.1 error '80004005'

COM Exception raised Function: CActiveSMS::SendMessage Description: Could not connect to service control manager

Using the test console works fine - messages are sent succesfully.

Here is the code from my page :

Set ActiveSMS = CreateObject("Intellisoftware.ActiveSMS")

For i = 0 to UBound(aDrsContact,2)
PhoneNumbers = PhoneNumbers & Replace(rsContact("tSMS_Alert_Number",0)," ","") & ","
PhoneNumbers = Left(PhoneNumbers,Len(PhoneNumbers)-1)
MessageText = smstext

MessageId = ActiveSMS.SendMessage (PhoneNumbers, MessageText, 15000)
Status = ActiveSMS.GetSendStatus(MessageId)

Should I be using the 'Activehandset' property? It wasn't in the sample but I've seen it elsewhere - if so, what value should go here?

Any help would be gratefully received.

thank you.
Please check the settings on the Queuing tab of the ActiveSMS Console.

Is “Store message in Memory” Or “Store Message in Database” selected?
