Why does SMTP not appear in the IIS Manager?

Sometimes after the installation of the SMTP service on Windows Server 2003, the SMTP tree may not appear in the IIS Manager console.


Click the “Start” button, then “Run…” and type:
regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\inetsrv\smtpsnap.dll
Alternatively, %systemroot% can be replaced with the drive Windows Server 2003 is installed on


Uninstalling and re-installing IIS including the SMTP service has also proven to fix the problem, it is, however, recommended to try the first method.
