Control panel|Programs and Features| Turn Windows features on or off

In the window that will appear you can choose your preferred interface to Internet Information Services

Also don't forget to enable remote management for IIS on your server:

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

You must install it as I suggested earlier. The link I posted will help you however it is simply just adding the feature.

Essentially. It is there but just needs to be enabled in the features so you can use it.
