Event ID's different than Event Viewer

P: n/a
I am writing a vb.net program to interpret the System event log on an IIS
computer. I want to intercept event messages from the SMTP service. Event
ID's 4000 and 4001 are primarily the two ID's that I am interested in.
However, when I query the EventLog object in VB.NET, the Event ID for events
with the previously mentioned ID's are returned as 266144 and 266145
respectively. For all other event messages the event ID's seem to be
returned correctly. I can obviously test for the two values that I am
receiving but I have not been able to find an explanation as to why those
two event ID's are returned to me differently than anything else. If anyone
has an idea, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.
