Our exchange seems to be funtioning fine but...
while going through dome settings, Exchange system manager, Tools, Status I see two items. One is the SMTP connector status available
2nd is the name of the server with a BIG X on it and status Critical service not running.

A while ago I messed things up by having 2 Default organizational unit for Small Business Server in active directory. I removed one and continued to setup exchange which is working fine. Our email is handled by exchange SMTP and NOT a smart host. What should I do about this critical error. Leave it alone?

Hello tucup,

the are just the MTA stacks that aren't running.
This is default on all SBS 2003 server, you can leave it alone.
