SP 2007 - Powershell Script to modify AccessRequestEmail

I found an article on here advising on how to report on AccessRequestEmail settings and have modified such code to also update (at least I hope) the email address field with a newer one but I am receiving an error.  Can anyone offer any suggestions on why the modified code may be failing and the error being received which I am also receiving.

[System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint") > $null

$logFile = "C:\scripts\SharePoint\ListAccessRequestEmail.csv"

$startime = Get-Date
"Script Starting..." + $startime | Out-File -filepath $logFile

# Create the stopwatch
[System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch] $sw;
$sw = New-Object System.Diagnostics.StopWatch
$sw.Start()

$siteCollectionURL = "http://myurlsite:80"
$theSite = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPSite($SiteCollectionURL)
$webApp = $theSite.WebApplication

foreach($site in $webApp.Sites)
{
	foreach($web in $site.AllWebs)
	{
		if ($web.RequestAccessEnabled)
		{
			$web.RequestAccessEmail = "newaddesstouse@mail.com"
            $web.Update()
            $web.Url + "`t" + $web.RequestAccessEmail | Out-File -filepath $logFile -append
		}
		else
		{
			$web.Url + "`tRequest Access Not Enabled" | Out-File -filepath $logFile -append
		}
		$web.Dispose()
	}
	$site.Dispose()
}

$sw.Stop()
$theSite.Dispose()

# Write the compact output to the screen
write-host "Time: ", $sw.Elapsed.ToString()

Open in new window


error recieved:

Exception setting "RequestAccessEmail": "This Web application is not configured to send e-mail. For assistance, contact your server administrator."
