I am having the issue described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954522

#16192 - The E-mail Router service could not run the service main background thread. The E-mail Router service cannot continue and will now shut down. System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: System information was not specified in the E-mail Router service configuration file. The E-mail Router service cannot continue and will now shut down. ---> System.Xml.XmlException: Root element is missing.

However; The fix of removing the XML file and restarting the service has no effect. I am on rollup 16.

Have you tried running the Email Router Configuration manager to see if it creates the XML file correctly?

I guess you could try removing and then reinstalling the Email Router.

Is this after a new install or later?

Reinstalling the Email Router resolved the issue, apparently this is a known issue with CRM 2011.
