You should be able to do what you want by installing/enabling/configuring the SMTP server on your server.  It may or may not have been installed when you set your site up.  If not, you will need to run the installation program again and add SMTP to your installation.

Mitch Tulloch's book "Administering IIS" covers what you need to know to do this, and it is probably a more than worthwhile expense if you are going to do your own hosting/email on IIS.

Additionally, Unless your business grows to needing over a couple of hundred emailboxes, a very affordable and easy to use mailserver software that I usualy recommend is a www.sugarsoft.com Very cool, efficient, and WAY cheaper than Microsoft Exchange Server or SendMail, or InterMail Post Office, or Rockliffe...

Keep in mind that Microsoft SMTP Server only sends mail, it does not receive mail. If you're setting up mail services to send and receive, you need SMTP and POP servers, like Microsoft Exchange Server 5.x or some other full featured mail server. The best source for Win NT freeware/shareware is www.bhs.com

Paul...you're new... welcome to EE!

I just found this place last week myself...
here's the deal...let me spare you being "yelled" at/lectured by" someone less friendly than myself...

At EE it is a matter of courtesy NOT to answer a question until the ASKER has indicated that your's is the solution they need...
Believe it or not, the "Honor System" works here, because it's just a "what goes around, comes around" philosophy..
Besides the points you earn for answering questions can't be redeemed towards your own questions...they are just used so that you can tell "genuinely helpful" people from people who want to do nothing but critique other people's solutions and not actually try to HELP the asker...ya' know..??

As I'm sure you know, there's always something that someone else thinks they know better..but ultimately the ASKER should decide if it's ANSWER worthy...

Anyway, unless you have something to REALLY add to the conversation, it's usually better left unsaid...
I reallize you added to what I said in this case, but if you'll re-read, I clearly indicated that a mailserver was necessary, and listed THE least expensive and it's hyperlink, as well as the names of 4 others...

Had he asked for more specifics about mailservers, either TTom, or I, because I had mentioned it, would have explained...
As it is now, the Question is "Locked"..

there's always plenty of questions to answer when they're brand new..that's the big thing with EE.."Most Questions answered within an hour!"...

Hope this helps...

Glad to see there are more people finding this site, and that they are leaning in "my direction".

There are areas (and people) on the site who believe that questions should be "answered" as quickly as possible.  I have found this not to work for me, and I am a firm supporter of "comment until asked" (unless I have an unequivocal answer).

This is a great site, both for asking AND for answering questions.  I learn somthing here almost every day, and it helps me to sharpen my skills.

Welcome to you both!!!

Thanks for all your comments and answers. I sold my old computer and I'll be getting a new one soon. That is why I could not reply back. I read your comments carefully in a week.

Thanks

Have you tried accepting Sitesee's comment as an answer?  Don't know if you can do that once an answer has been posted, but I don't see why not.  Just be sure you accept the right comment (the headers are ABOVE the comments).

Thanks Aseem...do you have any additional questions about it...?
SMPT or POP3??
I'll tell you, that sugarsoft software is really easy to understand...and works on win95/98/NT...
I haven't found anything that is as easy to teach to my clients...

I own a Rockliffe license, and it's a great Mailserver, but for the money, and since I don't need more than a couple of hundred Pop3 mailboxes and because I couldn't really afford to buy a SEPERATE machine to handle my mail....I wish I would've found sugarsoft first......
