Exchange 2010 unable to send or receive.

I had an EX2010 server go down due to a power outage today.  When the server came back up the database would not mount.  I ran eseutil /p to repair the database, then eseutil /d to defrag.  After doing that and moving the old log files to another temp folder I was able to get the database mounted.  Now Outlook conencts to Exchange and I can use Web Email, but I can not send or receive externally or internally.  When I send an email from that domain, it sits in the drafts folder.  When I have another domain email me, I don't receive it.  Any ideas?

Are all of your Exchange Services running?

everything but the microsoft exchange transport service.  I tried starting it and it said it started and stopped.  It also said some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services.

What does your Outlook client say at the bottom right of the screen?  Does it show connected to Microsoft Exchange?

Are the incoming emails hitting your exchange queue?

I am actually running in Outlook web access as I am working on the server remotely and not on a workstation with Outlook configured.  

When I try to look at the queues, I get "exchange cannot connect to the microsoft exchange transport service"

That would make me think that your Microsoft Exchange Transport service is not started on the Server.  Can you verify that it is started.

It wasn't started.  that is the one I mentioned earlier that wasn't started, then when I tried to start it it stopped on it's own.  I was able to figrure out the reson it was stopping when started was dus to the queues being corrupt or damaged.  I renamed the old queue folder under c:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\TransportRoles\data and created a new one.  Once I did this I was able to start the transport service and everything started flowing.

Thanks so much for your help.  I am going to award you the points for pointing me in the right direction to look at the queues.
