I am deploying WCF service and for that I have to configure IIS 5.1 or 6.0..

Why we require SMTP Service to be installed while configuring IIS 5.1 or 6.0?

Could we uncheck a SMTP Service Option while configuring IIS 5.1 or 6.0?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

SMTP is optional, so you can install it or not. this is use for sending mails from your server to other mailing servers.
