Configuration Error setting up Smartermail 11 on IIS 7.5
Problem reported by Andrew Bartle - 2/23/2015 at 7:19 PM
Hi... I'm new to setting up Smartermail.... the installation went without problem and verification was all good. Then I decided to move to IIS instead of the default web browser that comes with SmarterMail. I followed the instructions provided by SmarterTools on how to setup IIS 7.5. All good... however when I try to load the mail server.... mail.mydomain.com  I get the following config error. Anybody have any ideas? Thanx in advance.

Hi Andrew,
Based on the error message you are using ASP.NET 2 and SmarterMail 11 require .NET 4.  Please change this and let us know the results.
