windows 2000 sbs server, exchange 200 server
latest services packs.
hi, i think theres a problem with my smtp service starting properly.
the info stores mount properly, and the outlook connects to the ,mailbox ok, but the mail is not coming in, and the outbound mail is still in th outbox
i tried it on the server outlook [admin profile] as well, and outlook opens properly, only no new mail and mail sits in outbox.
service mngr., shows the smtp service 'started' and 'automatic'
i restared the 'iis admin services', and it restarted alot of others and the smtp is one [iis admin is a dependecy service] it seemed to work fine.
but when i try to restart the smtp on its own it takes awhile and then gives me an error 1053...cannot start the service.
i think this happened after a chkdsk, is there a way to possibly replace the file for the smtp service?
