Exchange IMAP 4 Service stuck in start.

My exchange Server's IMAP4 and POP3 services are stuck in the start mode.  Is there a way to stop the services and restart them while the server is running.  No current issued in the event logs although I would have to go way back to see anything.  All services required for it are started.
I need IMAP long enough to do some transfers.  All ideas appreciated.

(assuming exchange 2003)

a) is IMAP4 running as a local system ? if not - right click properties > change that.
b) you can technically kill the process inetinfo.exe - but that will kill your SMTP too
After that you can restart SMTP and IMAP4

c) what version of exchange

d) netstat -ab > c:\netstat.txt

See what services is running under port 143

please post back.

thanks

If they are stuck in the "starting" status I know of no way other than rebooting the server.  Anyone else?

I have not.  I hope to have a break in usage tomorrow morning so I'll let you know.  Would it be a good idea to set those services to manual and start them after boot up?
