The Microsoft SMTP service doesn't create a log file.

The Microsoft SMTP service doesn't log anything in the SmtpSvc1 directory even though you enabled logging and you're on Windows 2003?

Save yourself some trouble, and install the "ODBC Logging" role service in Server Manager. Although it shouldn't help, it does, and for me the SMTP service started logging automagically after restarting it.

Wasted an hour on that nonsense before finding this trick buried deep somewhere in a forum posting.
