I have been facing the subject problem for a long time now.  I  have a
windows 2000 and exchange server 2000 with service pack 2. I am also using
scanmail for exchange.

Once in a week my exchange server stops functioning and the users are not
able to send and receive emails.  when i open to check the system manager
under protocols i see a red cross on default pop3, smtp, http virual
server.  I have to restart my server every time i face this problem, then
it works.

I checked the event viewer and find out this description:

1) Event: 
   Source: POP3SVC
   Type  : Warning

   Event ID : 1036

   Description:  An error occurred while starting the Microsoft Exchange
                 POP3 Service: server instance number 1 failed to start 
                 with error 0x2740

2) Event:

   Source: SMTPSVC
   Type  : Error
   Event ID: 115
   Description: The service could not bind instance 1.  The data is the  
                error code.  For additional information specific to this
                message please visit the Microsoft Online support located
