Everytime we restart our SBS 2003 server we receive 'At least one service or driver failed during system startup' and on checking the System event log 2 events are listed;
Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange service to connect.
The Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
However when I attempt start the service manually it starts successfully and SMSMSE seems to function normally.
Also, I suspect that when the server is left like this i.e. Windows loaded but with the SMSMSE service not yet started, it causes a problem with e-mail's jamming in the Exchange 'messages pending submission' queue.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
