Hi Experts,

I want to configure the incoming e-mail function on my SharePoint 2010 server. When I go to features and click the SMTP Server feature, i get a message that i do have to install the 'Web Server (IIS)' role service as well.

But i believe this is allready installed, because the SharePoint site runs in IIS. I'm affraid when i install it again, it will mess up my IIS.

Am I right here? Or can I just install the IIS role service with the SMTP server feature?

    Yes, otherwise i can't install the SMTP service. But will it affect IIS?

    This should be installing an older version of IIS, and shouldn't affect SharePOint.
