Question: I have an Exchange server running SP1 (for exchange) which, when rebooted, gives the following error message:
Event ID 429
The specified mail queue directory is not valid. Cannot start the SMTP Service.
And of course, the SMTP Service doesn't automatically start. I have to manually go into the Admin console and start the smtp virtual server. Once I do, however, things run normally.
How can I fix this so that I don't have to go in and manually start the smtp virtual server every time I need to restart the server?
Thank you in advance for your help.
