ASP Web Error Messages Web Config Comment from MUBEEZI M @ 12/26/2012
Dear Richard,

Thanx a lot. it has worked perfectly. I however removed line 1 in the above code. When it is part of the code, all the web pages show the generic godaddy error.
Once again, thank you.

ASP Web Error Messages Web Config Comment from Mubeezi Micah @ 12/26/2012
Dear Richard,

time index: 1:17 and 1:42
I am using IE9 and Google chrome. However, when i have an error in my ASP code, i never get such helpful error messages. What i get is "500 - Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed."

I checked in Advanced Internet options and turned off "Friendly Error mssages" but there is still no difference. Is there an additional setting that i have not yet set?

Please let me know.

Micah, as a security measure, GoDaddy (and most ISPs) have "friendly" error messages turned on as a SERVER default. This is so hackers don't get to see any snippets of your code. You can turn them OFF and see the traditional ASP error messages by creating a file in the ROOT folder of your web called Web.config. Here's what it should look like:

Bulk Email Comment from Hamish Isaacs @ 11/9/2010
Yes! I have watched your tutorial re: Bulk Email Access 329.
But would it be possible to send the bulk email through your web browser.

Reply from Richard Rost:

Yes, as I said previously... you'd have to set up a page on your web site to be able to send it through your own web server. Sending it through a web service like Gmail or Yahoo would be VERY difficult.

Hi Rick,

I'm loving your course on ASP202. Q though? Are you able to send bulk emial through web browser, similar to your Access 329 course which covered bulk email.

Reply from Richard Rost:

In my class, I show you how to send email via Microsoft Outlook. It is possible to send email through your web browser IF you have access to do so from your email provider. I have one set up for myself. I show you how to send email in my ASP classes, so yes, you could use Access to post data to a form on your web site that then sends an email.
