What is your email setup.  Does someone else host your mail and then Exchange pulls it down?  Why aren't you running the IMS connector?

We have our own domain, So I think that means we host our own mail.

Unfortunately our NT guy left with no notice so I don't know what IMS connector is.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Having your own domain doesn't necessarily mean you host your own mail.  I have clients that have their own domain but we host their mail and websites (at a very nice rate I might add).

IMS is Internet Mail Service.  It's what Exchange uses to send and receive mail on the internet.

Do you have access to Technet?  If so, look up the event ID's and it will give you some info on resolving the issues.

This is going to sound REALLY stupid, but is it possible that the network cables to one of your servers got disconnected ?

No we are pretty sure we host our own mail.  The IMS is running on our server.  And we have had a look on Technet but still haven't found anything that has worked.  

We also think their might be a problem with the IS and Netwok DDE. The IS didn't stop properly the last time we shutdown the server and Network DDE comes up with an error when you start it.

As we have not had any input with setting up the server we are wondering in the dark a little.
