I have seen that Microsoft has provided a method to restoring the default virtual directories in IIS for Exchange 2003 but does anyone know a way to perform this task on Exchange 2000. My mail related virtual directories in IIS can't resolve their default paths and therefore OWA will not work along with Messenger.

I experienced problems after I tryed to install certificate services on the same server as my Exchange 2000 install so I could setup OWA over an SSL connection. I noticed that Messenger stopped working throughout the office and it went downhill from there.

I ended up using the info on the link I included in my original question. It turns out that a lot of the problems I had were due to an instance of Certificate Authority I had installed on the Exchange server and removed. Once I reinstalled it on the Exchange server my virtual directories were happy again.

To be perfectly honest my DC, and file/print/exchange server were cut out of a larger network that I had no control over. What I am left with are a few machines that were designed to query corporate DC's across a WAN. We had very few administrative rights locally and now I find myself trying to reinvent the wheel, not knowing how they had these servers originally before they were removed from the corporate network. I have been putting out numerous small fires since they handed it over to me and I plan on upgrading to Exchange 2003 and Windows Server 2003.
