this is just dumb

I had to install the SMTP service on a 2008 server today for the first time, and Microsoft does not make it easy.

  1. The SMTP install is under features and not under roles.
  2. When you do install SMTP, where do you manage it, you wonder. Thanks to google and this link, I now know that you have to use the IIS6 manager. What??!!
