I'm running an IIS SMTP server in Windows 2008 R2 and it can be started manually. However, if I need to restart the system, I must manually start the SMTP server.
Is there a way for it to start automatically on boot?
The display name in the services list is "Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)"
Set the Startup Type to Automatic
You may also want to select the Recovery tab and set the service to restart on failures.
