Exchange Default SMTP Server

If I go to Exchange System Manager > Admin Groups > Servers > Myserver > Protocols > SMTP

I can see "Default SMTP Virtual Server".  I assume this is the component that is responsible for Exchange sending emails.

Is this the same as IIS's SMTP service, or are they two different things?

Secondly, I also have some Exchange 2007 servers and can see a Default SMTP Virtual Server there....is it no longer included? In which case, how does Exchange 2007 send emails?

In exchange 2007 (and in 2010 as well) it's called 'Microsoft Exchange Transport', which does pretty much the exact same thing :)

In 2003 it's the same as the IIS one.

Thanks Azhrei....

Based on your comment, would it be correct to say that Exchange 2003 uses IIS SMTP to send emails, whereas 2007/2010 use a seperate component (MS Exchange Transport) altogether?

Instead of IIS logs, do this Transport have its own logs to troubleshoot problems?
