I accidentally removed our exchange server from our Active directory domain.  It has since been re-added, but we cannot get Exchange to come back up.  How do I go about reconnecting the Exchange server properly to our Active Directory to get mail back up and running?

make sure your exchange server is still in group "exchange domain servers", and which is in turn member of "exchange enterprise servers".

re-run "setup /domainprep" from exchange cd should help in this case.

Depending on how "well" the server tore itself out of AD you may need to do all the steps in: http://www.windowsitpro.com/Articles/ArticleID/50018/50018.html?Ad=1 to get it back up and running. It's probably only a matter of SIDs so you shouldn't lose any information. The article is web exclusive so you don't need to register. I'd print it out as the text is very long and close.
