is there anything else currently using port 25?

run netstat -anp tcp

also try telnet localhost 25.

if you get response you need to kill the app using port 25.

The answer was not correct but led me to the solution. The smtp service is disabled by default in 2003 server. At least on 3 of the installs I checked.
