I'm developing a asp.net MVC app that sends email for user registration, but I can't get IIS to send email. When I tested my code, it returns a "failure sending email". Here is what I have done so far
1. Installed SMTP tool in IIS 7 and make sure the service is running.
2. Created a test email and put it in inetpub\mailroot\pickup and the mail is sent and received fine.
3. I'm not sure what settings I should use in IIS. Should I use "localhost" as the smtp server and port 25? Under what circumstance do I have to use authentication?

IIS7 needs extra parameters to be declared before it will work.. these following are what you need to declare in your code that were not needed in IIS6 these are in ASP Classic

objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing")=2
'Name or IP of remote SMTP server
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver")="localhost"

'Server port
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport")=25
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Update

Installed the IIS6 management compatibility from Roles and then go to administrative tools, IIS6 manager and configure SMTP server.
