it is the same message for NNTP, SMTP

also, I am getting "The Network News Transport Protocol (NNTP) service terminated with the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified. " Event id: 7023

also, When I try to start the service the following message is displayed
---------------------------
Microsoft Management Console
---------------------------
Could not start the Microsoft Exchange IMAP4 service on Local Computer.



Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service.
---------------------------
OK

Also, the following for POP3

---------------------------
Microsoft Management Console
---------------------------
Could not start the Microsoft Exchange POP3 service on Local Computer.

For reference I followed MS's: Q277770 for event id: 7000  " The Microsoft Exchange POP3 service failed to start due to the following error:
The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service."

kevala,
I got it fixed.  IIS was corrupt. I'm sorry I did not get a chance to post my progress earlier.  I'm almost finished.

Thanks,
Joseph

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Now I can't telnet to port 25 or 110 from the server itself, or another workstation.  I don't get any errors in event log.  All services have started. anyone has any suggestions?

Thanks,

Joseph

If you are running less than service pack 2, you must reinstall Exchange and re-apply the service pack everytime you remove and add SMTP back.

If you are at service pack 2, then you need to run the "SMTP re-install" utility from service pack 2!

I still can't telnet to port 110. I had already reinstalled IIs and exchange, and exchange sp1. I have windows sp2 on there. Are you reffering to exchange sp or windows sp?  
thanks,

It is all working now.  Basicaly, I had to remove IIS, reinstall it, reinstall exchange, install exchange SP. I believe there was a virus on the machine.  When I applied the IIS patches things seemed to work.  I really can't tell what it caused it to crash, but there was a folder of over 10GB that should have been 450 MB.

Although I got it fixed,  you still diserve the points, because I was too envolved in getting it fixed where it kept me from checking the comments as often. We were on the same track, and I appriciate you help.



Thanks,

Joseph
