Fairly new with Exchange server. Running Small Business Server 2003 with Exchange 2003. Beginning at about 10:30 this morning, all my client computers (Outlook 2003) quit receiving email. They can send the emails but they never make it to the destination. What is strange is when I reboot the server, my clients can pickup email for about a few minutes and then it quits.
My Exchange system manager shows that the SMTP virtual server failed to retreive queues for the smtp virtual server (error code = 0x800706D9). The Exchange MTA says the same thing.
My event log shows a few red flags, I am just not sure where to start. About every 16-18 secs before the clients stop working, I get 3 erros in the event log.
The first of the three says; The IIS admin service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 41 times. The following corrective action will be taken in 1 millisecond. Run the configured recovery program
The second one says; the microsoft Exchange routing engine service terminated unexpectedly.
The third says; The SMTP service terminated unexpectedly. All three say It has done this 41 times.
Where do I begin?
