I have 2 Server 2008 boxes with Exchange 2007 running on the first domain controller - domain function is at 2008.
Exchange installed fine and everything appears to be installed properly, but the blasted transport service stops after a few seconds.  I've tried using both teh local system account and the network service account to run it but it always stops after a few seconds. One thing to note is after the local system account didn't work, i keyed in "network service" and used the admin password.  I'm guessing that's correct as the servie would start again - however it stops like always.  I'm at a loss here.  everything with the DCs seem to work great except  this vital service.  I'll continue to go through logs.  thanks!!

Getting a 16023 event:
Microsoft Exchange couldn't start transport agents. The Microsoft Exchange Transport service will be stopped. Exception details: No valid agents.config file was found in 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\Shared\agents.config'.  The default configuration for transport agents can be recovered by running 'scripts\ReinstallDefaultTransportAgents.ps1'.

Perhaps the link below will help. Someone else had a simular problem and it appears to have been the result of a permissions issue. Make sure the Network Service account has full permission to the 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\' folder and its children.

One items I don't understand is this Network Service.  If you choose local service account instead and then go back to Network Service account, you have to put a password in.  How would I know this?  Is this something you can reset or is the password the admin account?  I ask because in the Transport service, i did just that - changed to local service account and when i tried to change back, it prompted me for the password.
