change email server name - sharepoint services 2.0

when our new email server was installed the name of the server was changed.  Now sharepoint is not sending out alerts and I can't access my address book from the services.  Where do I change this?  I inherited this from a former employee.  I can't find the admin web page.  Can anyone help?

Hello,
There are 2 places to configure outbound email in the Sharepoint:
1: Central Administration > Operations > Outgoing E-Mail Settings
2: Central Administration > Application Management > Web Application Outgoing E-Mail Settings

At the item 2 you need to select your application from the drop down list and enter outbound email info. This part is very easy to overlook.

ok, I found the Central Administration page.  However, I do not see the Operations or Applicaiton Management options.

What I do see is: Virtual Server config; security config, server config, and component config.

Under server config I used "configure default emial server settings" to enter the mail server info but I'm still not getting the alerts.
