Exchange 2003 SP2 SMTP ConnectorIssues

     Every now and then the SMTP connector fails to connector and we are stuck with not receiving external mail.Are able to view this vis the Exchange System Manager-->expand the Server folder-->then expand the Servername-->select the queue to be able to view the smtp connector status on the panel to the right of the options pane.
     A server re-boot fixes the the issue sometimes or a unfreeze or force connection option but it is still problematic.
     Would like to resolve this issue once and for all.Thanks in advance.

I would suggest re-installing SP2 for Exchange as it often fixes problems with Exchange and may well solve this problem for you:

Sorry mate...I guess we must have posted through at the same time....have done the above but still the issue persists....Is there someway maybe of configuring a new connector???....And then deleting the current one...Thinking that maybe there is some sort of config corruption.

Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Yes - you can configure a new connector and disable the old one.

If you are not sure how to, there is a great article here:

By the way-before I go jumping onto creating the new connector...We just hit run and the sp2 downloaded .exe did its thing-there is no option to actually remove it from the Control Panel...How do do you actualy remove it??? It is not included in the list of updates and I merely did a write-over-which I think so-of what is already there but there were no prompts-so there was no write-over.

You don't need to remove SP2 - you can just run the Update.exe and it will re-install it happily.
