Why don't I see any options for using the SMTP service in the Microsoft IIS Manager?

A. If after you add the SMTP service you don't see a default SMTP Virtual Server in IIS Manager or see any options to create virtual servers, the SMTP registration most likely failed. To correct the problem, perform the following steps:

  1. Select Start, Run.
  2. Enter
    regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\smtpsnap.dll 
    to register the Smtpsnap DLL.
  3. Click OK.

The SMTP options will be available without rebooting.
