Default IIS Question

So when you go to the IIS manager select add website. Is that not the same as going in windows to InetPub, wwwroot and selecting a virtual directory like we used to do in the good ole days? Also what do you have to do in the IIS manager panel to configure SMTP server to run on your machine?

Default PS

When I go to the IIS Manager I clearly see that the Icon for SMTP server for Web Applications is there in the default website. Is that good enough? Or is there more that is needed to be done.

When you add a web site, you add one at the top level. Virtual directories can only be accessed by using machinename/VirtualDirectoryName or localhost/VirtualDirectoryName. So while they are similar in that they can contain an application, they are not the same.

I asked it before, but maybe you haven't seen my replies: can you please start a new thread for a new topic? It's much easier for everyone to have separate threads about IIS / Virtual directories and SMTP.

To learn how to install an SMTP server, check out the IIS site: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/751/c...mail-in-iis-7/

Alternatively, skip the SMTP server and use a local drop folder as explained on page 318.
