I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing this issue.  You may want to submit a support ticket so that one of our technicians can take a closer look.  If you do, please follow the directions in this article to also submit an RSAA so that they can get the necessary remote access to your server:

Ram, you may want to ensure the 'NetworkService' account has full control over the SmarterMail MRS directory. You may also want to check to see that you did not miss any IIS components when configuring IIS. Here is an article that may guide you a bit... http://know.mailsbestfriend.com/how_to_set_up_smartermail_as_an_iis_site_in_iis_10-1944509509.shtml I hope this helps. Good luck :)

I have unstalled and re-installed Smartermail with default path location and its working fine now.

Thank you!
