Last week I rebooted my exchange server when it came back up I had to go into services to restart them failed to start up on it's own. The problem that I am having is I add an employee with an account when going into his workstation to setup Outlook 2003 for him it could not find him in the active directory? Is their some place in exchange system manager or in services that i need to check to make sure it is not disabled?

You would need to create the user account on the machine running the ESM... That way, you're given a chance to create a mailbox for the user. If you just create the user account, say on a different domain controller not running ESM, then  you'll simply not be given a chance to create a mailbox...
Hope this helps

Is the user mail enabled?
Did the user get an email address automatically from Exchange?

This sounds like recipient policy isn't working correctly. The fact that the Exchange services didn't start correctly is not a good sign.
