How to turn off Microsoft's SMTP service 'system event logging' for specific event types

I run W3K3 and use the SMTP service (which is contolled via the IIS MMC).

Is there a way to control what SMTP events get logged into MS's System Event log? I want errors only (no warnings, no info). I am aware that I can "filter" the warnings using the event viewer itself so that is not my question.

In the perfect world, I would be allowed to specify what gets logged based on "event ID number" (and not event severity), but I will take what I can get :-)

Thank you, Byron

To my knowledge you cannot configure the SMTP service to only log specific events.

To make it easier to look at and review, you may want to consider importing your logs into an excel spreadsheet like they've done here:

If needed you can also find out more about interpreting the log output here:
