This seems to happen since a batch of updates done yesterday.
I found an articles suggesting an extra reboot, not working
Another suggested issue with Dynamics and CRM app which we don't use.

Another symptom is that on reboot the Information Store service doesn't start automatically, I need to start FSCControler Manually and then start the Information Store manually.
Not sure if it's related.

If this is the case in OWA. i am pretty sure.. if u send mail through outlook it will stuck in OUTBOX. please check that...
are all the roles installed on the same server? or u have diff server for mailbox and hub?
1. go to services and check if transport service is given Log on type as "network service"
and mailbox submission is given "local System"
2. open adsiedit.msc and there narrow down to server object--> properties of it..--> exchange server--> check if store delication etc etc..[evethng which starts from store] is given allow permission.
- Run EXBPA.
do the above and let me know the results...

Thanks, for the input.
-It's an SBS 2008 box so all roles are on the same box.
-MS Exchange Transport service Logon type is "network service"
-MS Exchange Mailbox Submission service Logon Type is "Local System Account"

I got it running last night by restarting these two services manually :
MS Exchange Transport and ASP .NET service manually
although it did not work straight away, around 10 mins after that, so I'm not really sure if that was the solution.

Have you found a resolution to this issue? I am also experiencing the same issue. I have ran the exbpa which did not find any issues relating to this issue.
