Unfortuniately it seems that all the smtp configuration docuementation glosses over setting up the service using a drop file, and focuses on setting up an external service to IIS7.5
my problem is that I've gone thropugh the setup procedure pointing to a drop file directroy (and added the IIS_User permissions as you pointed out) but my asp web application ( a simple page with the "change password" control on it; spits out the following
A from e-mail address must be specified in the From property or the system.net/mailSettings/smtp config section.
I've set the "from" address from the IIS manager to email@example.com in both the application directory, and at the website's root; restarted the site but still get this error. except for
this email problem it seems that the app is working
any ideas what I've missed?

Cheers that was great help.You Also need to go into properties of the SMTP server, Click on Access tab and Relay, add an entry for 127.0.0.1

I ran into this problem also.. migrating from Win2k with IIS5 to Win2008 R2 with IIS 7.5.
I think it's really incredible being forced to use 2 different consoles for managing the website and the smtp server..... I have a java web application that needs to send e-mails to the outer world, and configuring just the SMTP e-mail on the IIS 7 console
doesn't make things work..... So I have to use the IIS 6 console....really frustrating....

This comes with the package as IIS SMTP is still owned by Exchange team and it is still the same old SMTP from IIS 6.

Mate, why do absolute haters like you come on msft forums and spout your nonsense? Instead of answering his question (as if you could) and then possibly suggesting apache as an alternative you go into a temper tantrum espousing the evils of microsoft. Your
post comes off as nothing more than a childish rant. The answer you suggest at the end has NOTHING what so ever to do with IIS, and everything to do with smtp on "vista".Take your vitriol somewhere else please
