Exchange 2003 Prep Installing SMTP without POP3

Hi,

First time installing Exchange 2003 on Server 2003 enterprise edition with SP1.  Did it according to the checklist.  Got all the way down to the last step of actually installing Exchange and got an Error something to the extent of "You cannot install Exchange becuase POP3 is installed.  Uninstall POP3 and then run setup again."

I'm confused.  In the checklist it tells you to make sure SMTP is installed.  To install SMTP I went to Add/Remove Windows Components and installed the Mail Services, which is the only way I know to install SMTP.  How can I install SMTP without installing POP3?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

Yes, you do this via Add/REmove Windows components but you don't need the "e-mail services". It's done under Application server and IIS. See below: -

Install Windows Components Required by Exchange Server 2003
1. From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. Next, click
Add Or Remove Programs.
2. Click Add Or Remove Windows Components to start the Windows Components
Wizard.
3. Click the Application Server component, and then click Details.
4. Select the check box for ASP.NET and click OK.
5. Scroll down to Internet Information Services (IIS) and click Details.
6. Select the check boxes to select the following components:
NNTP service
SMTP service
World Wide Web service
7. Click OK to return to the Application Server components, and then click OK again
to return to the main Windows Components Wizard page.
8. Complete the wizard to install the components.

Ohhh....  Funny thing, I went under IIS and installed ASP.NET and NNTP but failed to see the option for SMTP.  That's a new one on me.  I thought the only way to install SMTP was through mail services.  

I unistalled Mail services and installed SMTP and that did the trick.  Thanks, I will be sure and add that to my personal knowledge base.  Appreciate the help.
