  • A couple of things to try:
    - Ensure that the account used to run the WSS Timer service is at least a Power 
    User on the SharePoint server that's running the SMTP service. This account needs 
    the right permissions to read the IIS metabase in order to find the SMTP drop 
    - If this still doesn't work, try hard-coding the mail drop folder. You can do this 
    in Central Admin -> Operations -> "Incoming email server settings" and choosing the 
    Advanced option. The mail drop folder option is the last one on the page.
