it's fine. Get an error in the event log:

The remote server did not respond to a connection attempt

Looks like maybe a permission problem. Make sure IUSR_<machine> account has access to your mail server. If you're running the mail server on the same box as your web server, check to see that it's on, and that the proper port for mail is set. Typically, this is port 25, but if it's different, you'll have to connect through the port that it's expecting.

I've run into this a few times too - DavidLars99 post link should give you everything you need -
in a nutshell- when IIS is installed - so is a local mail server - but that server usually needs to be configured - and rarely is.
This is especially true if you're in a corprate environment behind a firewall - you'll need to find the main mail server (that supports SMTP) and route the local mail server to it - the setting is pretty burried in the SMTP config of your local IIS, but again I think it's all covered in the link David posted.

<-- Please do not award points to this response, I am not trying to hijack David's answer, just trying to help with my 2 cents -->
