This is almost certainly the problem that Adam was having; that said, the
Microsoft documentation on this is next to useless.

They say that you need smtpmd.exe to set it via the command line; getting
hold of this utility is a chore indeed. Once you've got it, you may
find (I certainly did) that the command given doesn't work. At all.

After about 4 hours of screwing around, here's the _ACTUAL_ command, so
hopefully you won't have to wrestle with it like I did:

    smtpmd set -s <servername> -path SmtpSvc/1 -prop 37030
               -dtype DWORD -value 1 -attrib inherit

Hope this helps (Microsoft certainly didn't),
