SMTP default to stop please. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Can you please not have the IIS SMTP off by default?  It was on by default in old IIS servers and we all remember the heyday the spammers had with that.  


    Please set it to stop or not to be installed when you first install the WHS. I think using a setup a wizard to turn it on if people want to use it would be best solution, that way it is set up correctly. 


    Remember security is part of the Microsoft Ethos.

  • Wait ... what?  I'm confused.

    You say to please not have SMTP off be default?  Isn't that a good thing?

    Did you mean to not have it on by default?  I haven't looked into this yet, so I'm not sure if it's on or off by default.
