IIS says the sites are available (running).  If you right-click on one and select "Browse" what happens?

And if you expand the site, find a page you know should display, right-click on that, and select "Browse"?

THANK YOU GUYS FOR ALL YOUR HELP.

SORRY TO SOUND STUPID.

I DID A SECOND RESTART AND IT STARTED WORKING.

CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY IS WASN'T WORKING AND HOW TO PREVENT IT ?

It seems to be url issue. Can you create a dns A record like 'mail' and point to your exchange server and now try to access from your web browder just typing 'mail' and see what's the outcome.

Paul MacDonaldDirector, Information SystemsCommented:
Might be DNS.  Might have been an issue with the web service.  You might want to keep this open for a day or two to see if the problem re-occurs.

If restart resolved the issue then the exchange server would have not started
