The only reference to {3DD87645-8645-4BF0-B143-D63E6FE129F7} I can find in the registry is the Search Assistant\ACMRu\5603 with 2 files listed mail.oft and exscfg.exe.

Any ideas on solving the DCOM error messages?

    To edit Dcom settings go to Component Services under Administrative Tools and click Component Services and then DCOM config.  Under there you will see a listing of programs.  Find the Search assistant program you found and you can look at properties and modify the permissions.

    None of the related components appear under Component Services for Search Assistant, ACMRu or the ID {3DD87645-8645-4BF0-B143-D63E6FE129F7}.

    Exscfg.exe generally refers to the exchange Server Replication Configuration program.  Do you have that on the server and recently changed the password?  If that is installed is that listed under the DCOM properties?  Do you have any services that are running as a user account with a wrong password?

    Solved my own prolem.  Finally was able to ID the Application.  It was listed under COM+ applications and it was MxClaim Basic.  Apparently the client had installed this application to apply security headers to outbound email and their trial subscription expired.  The application is actually listed as Customer Manetism.  Thanks for all the help!

    Awsome.  Glad you found the issue.  Those application id's are always hard to find.  I wish it would just list the name.
