I have plenty of ASP and ASPX pages running on this server. And with no instructions accompaning the ASP pages I figured it was ready to roll.

It isn't   :(

I went through DBConnect information... But I am still getting internal errors.

Is there a set of instructions on requirments to make the web interface work?

What kind of "internal" errors are you getting?

Usually all that is needed to get the APS up and running is to modify the db_connect.asp page so that it points to the path on your server where you stored the SpamFilter.udl file. The UDL file contains your database connection settings. The most common problems with IIS are permission-related issues. Please make sure that the anonymous account (IUSR_machinename) used by IIS has read access to the UDL file.

Please note that if you are using MS Access as a database platform, unfortunately Microsoft will create a .ldb file in the directory where the Access file is stored, so the IUSR account will require write access to that directory as well.

The following is an excerpt from the readme.html file in SpamFilter's help:

Web interface We provide sample ASP and PHP pages that interface with the quarantine database. The webserver does not need to communicate in any way with the server where SpamFilter is installed on. The web server instead does need to connect to the database server. We recommend using an UDL file for the database connection in the ASP/PHP code, as you are able to place this file in a secure location on the webserver, outside the public web area, making it harder for intruders to gain access to it. The UDL file can contain the database password, so you will not have to store it in the web pages. The database connection is defined in the db_Connect web page
