Hi, When I startup my SBS 2003 server I receive an error message indicating the following:


   The ordinal number 11 was not found in the DLL "MAPI32.dll".

Any help is much appreciated,

    Did you by chance install Outlook on your server?

    Uninstall it, and then follow this KB article to reinstall Exchange and IIS:

    you can also if possible copy the Mapi32.dll files from the exchangesrv folder in program files to the windows\system32 folder then reboot and see if that works, I had a similar problem with this one before.

    Otherwise if this does not work then techsoeasy's way is the only way forward. Sometimes outlook/new applications puts mapi32 files in windows and this screws up exchange but the original files for exchange should be in the exchange folder.
