THe error says:

A fatal directory error occurred. Change to the maximum logging level for mo details (MTA MAIN BASE 1 15) (16)

Then it throws and event:  There is not enough Performance memory to display the MTA Connection information. Stop attached Performance monitors and re-start the MTA.

I have not set any monitors and cannot figure out why it wont start up.

I have just reloaded this domain controller and forced replication.

ANy suggestions?

What version of Exchange are you using?  
If an earlier version:

if 5.5 this is what I found when looking on eventid.net (great site) :

Type Warning  
Description There is not enough Performance Monitor memory to display the MTA Connections information. Stop attached Performance Monitors and re-start the MTA. [BASE TIMER 3] (14)  
Comments Ionut Marin (Last update 11/9/2003):
This problem occurs because the System Account or Local System Account is specified as the service account in Control Panel Startup for the Message Transfer Agent service. See Q185154 to fix this problem.

Adrian Florin Moisei (Last update 5/22/2003):
According to Microsoft: "To resolve this behavior, verify that the service account role is set to service account administrator on the site object". See Q268227.

As per Microsoft, This can occur when the server is running low on disk space and/or Virtual memory.
