I am trying to migrate a website running on IIS6 (Server 2003 x86) to a Server 2008 x64 with Exchange 2007 as the email server.
The site seems to run but is having issues sending emails.
The web server on the Server 2008 x6 system has been configured as per
http://blogs.iis.net/bills/archive/2008/06/02/installing-asp-net-1-1-with-iis7-on-vista-and-windows-2008.aspx , I started to run through this again to make sure I haven't missed anything and I did run into problems reapplying the security hotfix but I do
believe this has been applied previously.
The application pool is set to run 32 bit applications, classic, using the .net 1.1 framework
Searching through the code I have found the following which I believe indicates it is using built in commands in asp.net 1.1 to send the emails.
In the web.config for the website the following is present
<add key="SMTPserver" value="localhost" />
These settings work fine out of the box on the Server 2003 system (i.p is different) but that is using IIS6 to provide SMTP relaying, I have setup Exchange 2007 to the point where I believe this should be working but am having issues tracing the code attempting
to send email, the rest of the site seems to be working ok on the Server 2008 x64 system apart from the email.
Any pointers in the direction to be looking or ways to check for the would be much appreciated.
Edit: Crap - I just realised this should have been in the administration forum, if a mod can move it, it would be appreciated.

If you want to deliver e-mail messages from your site, you need to configure SMTP e-mail in IIS. For the detailed information, please refer to:

Its IIS7 on Small Business Server 2008.
In response to the other post, I was under the impression from what I have read that an application running in asp.net 1.1 wouldn't accept settings, set in the feature view in the GUI and had to have all the info set in the web.config (which is already

Have tried to start from sscratch, reinstalling all the asp.net 1.1 software (the dotnetfx, sp1 and sp1 security hotfix) but still cannot get the site to send emails.
Any suggestions on tracing smtp requests from the code / iis7 ?
