The first error indicates queues have an error. Have you looked at the queues to see if they are building up? That could indicate an error.

That IP address belongs to "Eschelon Telecommunications". Any connection to them?
Any other errors in the event log? Inetinfo errors for example?

Ah ha.
There are some fixes for crashing inetinfo. When Inetinfo goes it brings down other services that rely on, such as smtp.

Take a look at this articles from Microsoft:

also when I look into \\mydomain.com\sysvol\mydomain.com\ there is nothing in there. Now I know for a fact that I havn't touched anything in there if there is supposed to be something in there.

That is something else completely.
Is this machine a domain controller as well? Is the only domain controller?

Go through the event log, see if there are any errors regarding Exchange or DNS.
Any errors flagged at all when the patch went in?

Nope this is not the Dc - but I'm getting this error on both the exchange server and my Dc

thought at about the time I installed the patch to when I found out that everything was messed up. I have this error about a million times

This is DNS or other AD error.
Quick research identifies a number of problems.

1. Stale DNS records.
ipconfig /flushdns on both servers will fix that.

2. Global Catalogs. Make sure that the Exchange server is looking at a DC which is also a GC. It is set in RUS in the ESM.
Make sure that the DNS servers listed in the host for Exchange are pointing at internal DNS servers. The DNS servers should be pointing at themselves for primary and each other for secondardy.

3. Security Settings for Exchange are screwed. That is easy to fix. Re-run forest and domain prep for Exchange 2003 on the domain again. Leave it about 30 minutes between each stage for the information to replicate.

Thanks sembee

I flushed DNS on both server


the RUS is pointing to the DC with the GC.

I'll  rerun Forest prep asap and let you know.
