I am trying to trouble shoot my alerts in sharepoint and I found this technet article which seems to be a good starting point.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263462(office.12).aspx

But I can't find Add/Remove Windows Components so I can verify the SMTP service is setup correct.

My question is where do I find "Add/Remove Windows Components in SBS 2008"

There is not Add and Remove Components in Windows 2008 Server family like including SBS 2008. You need to go to Features and Roles.

dariusg - Thank you that was informative an informative article and answers my question.
I have checked my server manager and it does not show SMTP role or even the option to add a SMTP role.  We use exchange through that server so I am convinced it is setup right, I was just wanting to check it out in hopes I would find the answer to my ultimate question.  "Why my alerts in sharepoint don't work"  I will do more research and post a better question later.

Yagyashree - I'm a bit confused on your article post and it's relevence to Add/Remove Windows Components (probably my own ignorance) but I do appreciate the effort.

I am splitting the points as I see appropriate.
