Can You Create a Logon Trigger in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition?

Can you create a logon trigger in SQL Server 2005 Express Edition? The answer is no. LOGON is not a supported event type in Express Edition. The script below shows you the error message when you try to create a logon trigger:

CREATE TRIGGER welcome ON ALL SERVER
AFTER LOGON
AS
  PRINT 'Welcome to FyiCenterData database!';
GO
Msg 1084, Level 15, State 1, Procedure welcome, Line 2
'LOGON' is an invalid event type.

Or may be there is a configuration setting that disables the logon event type.
