i have an issue with an SBS server. The SMTP service is running in services. yet when i try to run default smtp virtual server in exchange system manager i get the following error
Event Type: Error
Event Source: SMTPSVC
Event Category: None
Event ID: 115
The service could not bind instance 1. The data is the error code.

I have changed the port for the default SMTP and it starts fine. Yet when you change it back to 25 it no longer works.
If I telnet to it I get the following error
Connection to host lost.
C:\Documents and Settings\rich>
It looks like something else has taken control of port 25, but i cant find what it is.
Thanks in advance.
