the 80004005 is a standard error code wich means 'system call failed'.
so that can be just anything [that's why you have so many way to correct
you can try to just restart the IIS server once your server is up.
(sometimes IIS starts before exchange finish to start)
but of course that's just one possibility.
Very often (not to say always) this error happens because you changed
something in the configuration (I also had this probleme with the pre sp2
hotfix) so maybe that going trough every changes you made will lead you to
find a solution.
