Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Everytime I restart my server, my SMTP Virtual Server stops. There have been a number of times where I've forgotten to start it again and I've caused a number of problems for the sites I am hosting.

Is this correct behaviour in Windows Server 2008, and is there any way in which I can stop this from happening?

Thanks in advance.

  1. Make sure that the SMTP service is set to "Automatic" in the Service Configuration Management Console
  2. Give us the logs that contains the error messages during Windows startup.

1) was spot on! Thank you for your help, I was looking for the startup setting in IIS itself. –  Jonathan Jul 3 '11 at 20:35
