Cannot start SMTP service after IIS and Exchange reinstalls
Posted on 2007-10-16
I'm running SBS 2003 SP 2 and Exchange.
I did something stupid today and uninstalled/reinstalled IIS after I was having some trouble with it. That was bad and Exchange quit working.
I found someone's report of doing the same thing and as it suggested I re-ran Exchange setup in disaster recovery mode, and remounted my stores, and reinstalled Exchange SP 2.
Everything seems fine, I can get into Outlook mailboxes like normal but I can't send/receive email. The SMTP service won't start. I try to manually start it and it says Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured to run in does not implement the service.
PLEASE, can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix this? I'm desperate, I have lots of angry staff members who's email is being interrupted.
