The problem is not SmarterMail....the problem is windows 2012. Nothing is installed by default. And, if you install IIS8, asp.net is not installed, and if you install asp.net, asp is not installed. I did follow the IIS 8 install KB but its very confusing because you can tell its written by someone standing in front of a 2008 machine. I've installed SmarterMail in 2008 as well and that is nothing special. But in windows 2012, you literally have to enable every single program you need and some of the ones on the IIS 8 KB I did NOT install and didn't have to. Why that is, I have no idea. Maybe I'm just not using that feature. However, I found it fairly non-trial compared to ALL the other installs because of Windows 2012 which is a hunk of junk IMHO. Like I said, I have more than 4 licenses, I have installed since version 2, I have installed on every Microsoft OS. So its not like I'm a newbie at this. I think if I had been a newbie, I would NOT have been able to figure it out.
