Hello All,

Just started to use the POP3 services for some propriatary applications. It works fine until a reboot in which time the POP3 Default Virtual Server does not start automatically. All of the pop3 and exchange services are set to automatic and are in a started state, but I have to open up the exchange management app and start the service manually. How can I get this service to automatically start up after reboots in exchange server 2003.

Thanks in advance.

It mentions a registry key that can be changed.

Thank You So Much! Below resolved the issue. It also guided me to fix another issue which required the setup of a dependent on my citrix servers.

1.  Go to start and then run and type in regedit.  

2.  Navigate to the following registry key  

3.  Right click on DependOnService entry and select modify

4.  In a new line below IISAdmin entry type in MSExchangeSA and click Okay.

5. Close registry editor.
