Hello Experts,
I have a 2008 Std member server ( no Domain) sitting in a DMZ by itself and need to get the SMTP service configured. The Server is in it's own WORKGROUP.
When I click on current sessions under IIS 6.0 it gives me the message above in the Tiltle box.

I have SharePoint 3.0 running on this Server with the free express database. DNS is installed and simply configured with one forward zone and one reverse zone.

I found an article on the Web that mentioned installing ODBC logging and registering two DLL's but that did not work. it could not find the targeted DLL's.

thanks!

Anyone,
If I change the WORKGROUP name to something other than the default, will this help? is the fact that I do not have a Domain setup in any way prohibiting me from getting the SMTP service to enage?

Thanks rickhobbs but that link is about installing SMTP. Have an error AFTER succesfully installing SMTP and clicking on Current Sessions.
