I am currently working on Exchange 2003 server and I have a problem with Log files

When I go to my Exchange System manager, hten go to SERVERS, **MYSERVERNAME**, PROTOCOLS, SMTP, DEFAULT SMTP VIRTUAL SERVER
and right  click and go in properties, the message IIS LOGGING - UNABLE TO READ CURRENT LOGGING PLUGIN VALUE appear.
Then I click ok and go to the properties screen.
If I click on ENABLE LOGGING, the LOG FORMAT dropdown is empty and I wont be allowed to log since there is not log format available.

I looked at other sections of the exchange manager and the IIS log works fine.

I think it´s a problem in the IIS, because IIS hosts the SMTP before installing Exchange. Reinstall IIS using this KB-ID

Thanks for the reply,

However, if I follow this procedure, I will have to reinstall my IIS as well as my Exchange 2003 server .. .. .. ..

Is there an easier way ?
