SBS2K3 Server Monitoring error

I have a server running SBS 2003 SP2.

I activated server monitoring about 6 months ago and it ran pretty well up until about one month ago when it failed. I tried re-running the Monitoring Configuration Wizard and it now failes.

The error message is "An error occurred while running the wizard". The
Configuring Data Store, Data Collection and Alert Threshold are all
checked at completion but Configuring Reports fails. if I do not check Receive a
daily performance report in e-mail, Configuring Reports completes
successfully. Checking to Elect to receive usage reports will also cause
Configuring Reports to fail. Specifing in an internal or external email
address has the same result, it fails.

Here's the error log:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:  ServerStatusReports

There was a recent similar question where it was suggested some of the web sites may have been updated to .NET 2.0 and if that wasn't the case reinstalling monitoring was suggested:

Tried it. No joy.

Client doesn't want to spring for paid monitoring, Is there anything else that might work?

You could try re-installing the monitoring components as per:

That didn't work either, although I am loath to re-install SQL since it will effect production and probably just make things worse..

We told the client the entire O/S will need to be re-installed from scratch to fix the issue. No one on the Microsoft support blog site has even addressed the question (typical) for a week! The only response I got was from here!

Good effort and might have solved the issue in some circumstances. Just not this one.

Thanks gem555. Sorry I was not able to help. I am surprised others did not "jump in", although that may indicate it is a unique problem.
Cheers!
