Incoming Email Issues

  Asked By: Madison    Date: Feb 04    Category: MOSS    Views: 1106

I have some
additional info. I was able to get the email services started by adding a second
server to the farm. Once the server was installed and configured I could start
the services. The question is now how do I move the service to the other server
in the farm. I still cannot see it in the central administration services on
server or in the enumservices.

Below is the original post for reference:

I am running SharePoint wss v3 SP2 on a windows server 2008 sp2 machine (only
one web front end). I have a sql server 2005 back end with a exchange 2003 email
server. I have configured the incoming email and the email is being deposited in
the drop box. I went into central administration and configured incoming email
and email enabled a list. The contact was successfully created.

My problem is that when I go to central admin-> services on server the option to
start incoming email is gone (I have selected custom and all). I ran the stsadm
enumservices command and don not see the email service in there. I tried to
manually start it using stsadm and it is still not working.

I little history that may be useful. I was forced to move the web front end to a
new server when the network administrator updated coldfusion and it destroyed
the IIS for sharepoint. The databases all stayed the same I just installed a new
member of the farm(the current server) and then moved all the services to that
new member and removed the old server from the farm.

I am wondering if there is still somewhere in the configuration that it is still
looking to the old server and that is why I do not see the incoming email option
in the services on server, and if there is a way I can fix that.
