Event 9175 on SBS 2003 Premium

I have a Small Business Server 2003 Premium OS that does NOT utilize Exchange but I am getting the error EVENT 9175 every minute on my logs(which refers to exchange server not being available).  All posts I've seen to remedy this situation has been for servers that ARE running Exchange.  Can someone help me get these error messages stopped?

Are your Exchange Services disabled?

You need to ensure that all the services that start Microsoft Exchange are set to disabled.

If they are not then there is a possibility they could be used inadvertantly.  They will also be using resources on your server.

Is this as simple as going into the server>[run - services.msc] and stopping all services relating to MS Exchange? (there are some that are set to automatic)

no, set them to disabled, not stop.  if you don't set them to disabled they will restart next time you reboot the server.

There are 9 Exchange items in the Services panel. 4 were already disabled and several others had to be stopped.
Event - Manual (stopped)
IMAP4 - Disabled
Information Store - Automatic (stopped)
Management - Automatic (stopped)
MTA Stacks - Disabled
POP3 - Disabled
Routing Engine - Automatic (stopped)
Site Replication Service - Disabled
System Attendant - Automatic (stopped)

As you can see, some items were only stopped - It did not offer the option of Disabling those services.  But in the time it took to type up this response the error messages have stopped.  Is there a way to disable  the "Automatic" services?

IMAP4, MTA, POP3 & SITE Replication service are always disabled by default.

You need to right click on the services and select properties, then in the pull down box set them all to disabled.
