    Even though you are using IIS7, your SMTP settings are set in IIS 6.

    So Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> IIS 6 -> Then Click on the appropriate "Virtual Server" and right clicking, choose Properties.  Enable Logging is at the bottom, and you will be able to choose logging formats, log locations, and what properties you want logged, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    19:10:22 QUIT - 240

    I recently went to 'advanced' and checked off all the items

    how can I get the most information
    is there a difference between
    w3c extended log format
    iis logfile

    in providing the most information
    so I can actually understand it

    Also, here are some troubleshooting guides.  Don't be put off by the references to Win 2003, it's just that IIS 6 originally came on 2003.
