SBS 2003 all latest updates
All services are running and the exchange server doesn’t get any mail.
When restarting the iis admin service everything seems to work for a while, then the same problem comes back.
I made a bat file that restarts the iis admin service 3 times a day, and that seem to solve the problem temporally.
But I would still like to solve this permanent….
