First of all, do you have the SMTP service installed?  If not (or if you're not sure), go to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> Add/Remove Windows Components to open the Windows Components window.  Select 'Application Server' and click 'Details'.  In the Application Server window, select 'Internet Information Services' and click 'Details'.  In the Internet Information Services window, make sure the 'SMTP Service' box is checked.  If you will be using FrontPage to create web pages to send email, make sure 'FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions' box is checked as well.  Click 'OK' to install the SMTP service (if it wasn't already installed).

Next - how would you like to send the email - via web pages running on your IIS server?
