What are the Internet Information Services ?

What's their function?

In IIS, what is the SMTP server? Can I send emails with it?

Thanks. :confused:

Microsoft Internet Information Services contains:

A notoriously insecure and exploitable HTTP Server For Hosting Your Own Webpages

A really crappy FTP Server with very few features for uploading and downloading

A SMTP server for automated mailings from the site. This server can be used to send mail, but IIS does not have a server for recieving mail

IIS is only a security hole when it is managed by incompetent morons who shouldn't be using daddy's DSL connection to download warez versions of Win2K server to begin with. But then again, it's always easy to jump on the bandwagon, isn't it?

I Don't think IIS is that bad... Closing the wholes are that hard, but thay do keep poping up. Some well chosen programs will keep that from happening too...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
