Pull the crack pipe out. XP Pro does not have NNTP Service installed. It
isn't even an option if you choose to install IIS. For the record, I do not
have a single part of IIS installed on my local machine, yet I seem to be
able to run ESM just fine on my XP Pro SP1 computer (you should have the
SMTP service installed, but disable it afterwards). The only thing that you
have to have installed prior to installing ESM is the Patch that tells
Exchange setup not to look for the Windows 2000 Admin tools. The KB article
that documents this can be found here:
