The system drive failed, so I installed new drives, installed windows & exchange, got exchange up and running with the original edb's.  Now, when I start the ES, it starts successfully, then gives the following error, then stops successfully.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      MSExchangeES
Event Category:      General
Event ID:      5

Description:
An unexpected MAPI error occurred.  Error returned was [0x80004005].

Any ideas on how to fix this?  I had some issues originally with the MTA & IMC, but I changed the required entries in the registry and they began to work.

Changed registry entry for MTA and IMC?  That sounds like you installed with the wrong Org or Site name.  If so thats very likely the problem with the event service.  Check the MSExchangeSA\parameters key.  There is a value for your org name here, I think its called Enterprise.  There may be a couple of others that designate site and server name.  Change these to reflect the correct values and see if the ES will start.  Sorry I don't have the exact value names, I don't have a 5.5 server handy.

I know where they are, I'll take a look.  I didn't look there, only in MSExchangeES\parameters.  We'll see if this works.

Awesome!  The display for the site is 'Services KDC', but the actual site name is 'SVCKDC', which is had the full display name.  I changed it to the latter, which it runs now.  After starting up, It gave this error:

No registered folders were found to monitor.

Is this anything to worry about?
No, that just means you don't have any event scripts registered.  It is completely normal, besides its just an informational event.
