Exhcange - SMTPSVC service is Start Pending

Running Small Business Server 2003. In my daily report I keep getting the message 'SMTPSVC service is Start Pending'. When I select SMTP service, it show a Service Status of 'starting' but it won't le me do anything with it (all the options are greyed out).
Can't figure out what's going on.

Your help is appreciated

I see the same problems on my own SBS2003 R2 from time to time (like right now). I can't speak for ernestop, but in my case, the system log has no errors/warnings/info on smtpsvc.
Interestingly mail traffic seems to flow in all directions just fine, so the error in the daily report seems to be only a nuisance.
(The hardest part of SBS seems to be learning the list of errors that can be safely ignored. It's not a short list!)

Try restarting the server to clear the fault and see if it starts up then.

Do all the exchange services startup correctly??.  What error does the system log file give for this service??.

Cheers
