Any way to install the POP3 service without reinstalling Exchange?

After my whole issue here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_22989091.html

The POP3 service went missing.  Since Microsoft gave me an executable for reinstalling SMTP, I was hoping there was some kind of utility out there.  Or what about the POP3 service in windows components?  That won't reproduce the mail server role via server config right?

You'll need Exchange's POP3 service, not Windows.  What you can do is install the Exchange CD, and do a repair, not reinstall.

Is it missing or is the Service Not Started?

Click Start, point to Administrative Tools and click on Services.

In the Services console, locate the Microsoft Exchange POP3 entry and right click on it. Click the Properties command.

On the Microsoft Exchange POP3 Properties dialog box, click the down arrow on the Startup type drop down list box. Select the Automatic option.

After the Automatic option is selected, the Start button will become available. Click the Start button to start the POP3 service.

The Service Control dialog box shows a progress bar for starting the POP3 service.
Click OK on the Microsoft Exchange POP3 Properties dialog box after the service has started.

The Microsoft Exchange POP3 entry in the Services dialog box will show the service as Started and the Startup Type as Automatic (figure XX).

I understand that I need the service.  But every reference that I can find to the same problem always suggests to reinstall Exchange.  I was looking for another option because I do not feel comfortable doing that.

Exchange doesn't have a POP3 service. It uses the IIS POP3 service which is then modified by Exchange when Exchange is installed. While I know the outcome of your previous question you are looking at either another call to Microsoft or a reinstall of Exchange to put IIS back as it should be for Exchange to operate.

Simon, what about the pop3 service under add/remove windows components?

Nevermind, it says that it installs SMTP as well.  I predict that would make yesterday happen all over again.
