exchange server not working after server crashed

I have a client with a 2003 SBS and their server stopped working as a result of the battery backup went bad and kept shutting down their server.  It finally caused file corruption and then it would not boot.  I repaired the drive and get the system to boot up and back into windows.  now the exchange server will not connect at all.  

I cannot figure out why.  The client computers connect to the server but they are not pulling down of sending out any emails.

Any ideas?

I am going to close this question as i was able top solve on my own.   The raid was corrupt and this was a copy of the bad drive which was recovered and the newer drive was damaged and could not boot so I was getting a drive which did not have updated files.

Restore from a good backup?

Are all the Exchange services started?  Did the Information store mount?  Did the SMTP service start?  It could be a number of things, start with the services and if the store will mount.

Are they connecting to their mailboxes and can see their mail, but nothing new is going in or out?  Are they Outlook clients "offline"?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

You may have a corrupt on "dirty" information store that may need to be repaired...

Could you attach a system log if possible?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to everyone.  They did not have a backup.  All the exchange services are running.  I  am attaching the system event log.  
I also tried to mail to one of the accounts and this is the message I am getting, "

A temporary error occurred while delivering to the following address(es):

  <doty@vintage.com>: 451 All MX servers are unavailable for domain vintage.com

I will continue trying to send the message until it is delivered
or expires."

No problem. I did a generic search and found this link http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=10&eventno=3739&source=Pcmcia&phase=1 (it's about hardware compatibility and a bad com(ponent) file maybe). I'll keep looking. Just trying to find relative items since i've not encountered this one before

I figured out the issue which was the hard drive itself.  None of the comments provided provided me with a solution.
