When you installed Exchange did you select Typical or Custom?, if you
selected Custom make sure you selected to install the Messaging and
Collaboration Services.

If you go into Administrative Tools > Services, do you see any of the
Exchange services listed?

Subject: [exchangelist] Can't Start my Exchange Server!!!

I'm was an IT Director in my previous life-time career, so mainly do all
my own technologies work for my company.  Just installed Exchange Server
2K on my WIN2K Adv Server, but can't seem to get the Darn thing listed
under the "Servers" folder, therefore not letting me do ANYTHING
whatsoever.  If I can't see the server there, then I can't even create
the Mail Box Stores.  Obviously Outlook is not resolving my mailbox b/c
there isn't any.  I've tried everything I know... what am I Missing??
Is there a way I can start it manually, or what services do I need to
look for that may be missing??  When I goto the Directory Services /
Users / "Username" / Properties .....  The only Exchange service listed
is the Chat Services, and even that won't go past the following screen.
