Exchange 2003 pop3 Imap4 won't start

when I go into the exchange system manager and look under protocols both IMAP and POP3 are stopped I try to start them but I get a error message that says

Ther service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. Check the windows event viewer for details.

When I got to the event viewer there is nothign in it.

Hi jui2ce,

Are the services started?  (Services, not protocols)

Start > run > services.msc > ok > find pop3 server and make sure it is set to started (and automatic)

This thread points to some possible solutions with pop3 not starting automatically (when it should)

Hope that helps,

Hi Jui2ce, By default these services are set disabled.

Go to start run
type in services.msc and hit enter
Scroll down until you find
Microsoft Exchange POP3
&
Microsoft Exchange IMAP4

Right click on each of them and go to properties
Under the General tab change the startup type to automatic.
Hit apply
Then start.
See if they start now
