Internet Mail Service Will Not Start

Bob the best idea would be to unistall and reinstall the internet mail
service ,as nothing is stored there you won't lose any data , and hopefully
you can remember the config of the IMS so it will remake the connection !

1. Internet Mail Service Connector -- service not starting

I am running exchange 5.5, and I can not get the Internet Mail Service
Connector to start reliably.  Some times I get an "exception in user32.dll"
and the service fails to start.  other times I get  "An internal NT error
occurred" and the service fails to start.

Does anyone know what rights the service account needs to start correctly,
and what might cause an exception in  user32.dll.  I started to have these
problems after rebuilding my MS PROXY 2.0 machine, is there something I may
have forgotten to set there.

When I do get the service to start, (which it does sometimes) I can only get
it to deliver some messages, it's like it can't resolve all the host names.
Like some sites it connects to every time, other sites, (HOTMAIL, YAHOO.COM,
and most .EDU) it never connects,  SO I can send mail (ISP's mostly) to some
people  but not everyone.

This is becoming a real headache and I can't afford to rebuild the Exchange

Any help would be appreciated.
