Exchange 2003 Server Enterprise Edition - Major Issue
Posted on 2007-10-12
I hope someone can help and soon. My Exchange 2003 Server - Enterprise Edition on Windows 2003 Server - Standard Edition is down, well sort of.
My SMTP Virtual Server will not start. When I try to start it within the Exchange System Manager it gives me the following error " The service has returned a service-specific error code. Check the Windows Event Viewer for details."
I check the Event Viewer and see Event ID: 429 , Source: smptsvc Description: Virtual Server 1: The specified mail queue directory is not valid. Cannot start the SMPT Service.
I have researched and found that I may need to delete the queue file and recreate it, but I am unsure how to do this. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.
