On a Windows 2008 server with IIS 7, I installed the SMTP service (configured through IIS 6.0 Manager) for an application to be able to send e-mail. At first, the SMTP service started without any problem. But the last two times the server has been rebooted, the SMTP service has failed to start, with event ID 7023 "The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) service terminated with the following error: Not enough resources are available to complete this operation." (I am able to manually start the SMTP service, though.)

You might want to change the setting from automatic start to automatic (delayed).  This should take care of the problem.
