Does anyone know how to enable and view the SMTP logs on Windows Server 2016? I could not find any information on Google. I am getting this message from a client Email: Login denied on host smtp:// and want to figure out why I am getting this.

    Are you talking about logs for the SMTP service which is part of IIS and log settings are configured in IIS Manager and default to the IIS log location. Or, are you running exchange or some other mail service? Jul 23, 2018 at 14:42
  • @Appleoddity I am talking about the former.

  • It appears I found them in C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles. I followed the directions on this website titled "How to configure, view and change IIS Log location on Windows Server 2016"
