Event Viewer Application Log empty

I am getting the following error when submitting a form. The form is supposed to e-mail the results. I am not saving the results to a file.

FrontPage Error.
User: please report details to this site's webmaster.
Webmaster: please see the server's application event log for more details.

When I look in the application event log I do not see anything related to this problem. This is very puzzling to me and I need help.

I am running W2K3 server with iis and have downloaded all of the windows updates, rebooted and there are some unrelated entries in the application event log. But it still does not log anything related to IIS.

This could be one of those annoying security glitches. Possibly IIS does not have sufficient privileges to write to the application log.

The log files in windows\system32\logfiles\* are the correct logs for IIS if you have the default configuration. But the amount of information given in them depends on the logging level setup in the Web Server. By default, it is not very helpful.

Since you have found the main problem, I guess the logging will work itself out.

This may seem like a stupid question, but did you look in the IIS log files?

Might not be that stupid of a question. I am really not familiar with web hosting. I have just taken on the task of hosting our company’s web site and am in the process of moving everything over. I will dig through them.......................
....................I looked at the log files that are in windows\system32\logfiles\* and none of the files make sense to me.
To me the form is real simple. It just has 8 things to fill out and a submit and reset button. here is a link to the form if you want to check it out. http://66.98.216.158/tempcontact.htm
Maybe I created the form wrong. I don't have a clue because I can not find an error log.

I found the problem. I had the wrong smtp server entered in the frontpage server properties. But that still does not tell me why there was no event logged.
