The other day while browsing the Internet, I Found A Fix for a recent problem I was having. The issue is described as follows;
The Microsoft Exchange POP3 service on Windows Server 2003 was stuck in an infinite state of ”Starting” status after I had tried to manually restart it . After this, it would not respond to “net start” or “net stop” and I was also unable to control it from the services control panel.
The solution and description to this error is set out below;
Not wanting to restart the server during business hours, I stumbled across this solution.
1. Open Task Manager. [Ctrl+Alt+Delete]
2. Find the process “inetinfo.exe” .
3. Click on ‘End Process’
The service should now start normally..
I Hope you too have Found a Fix!
