After you install Microsoft Exchange Server 5.0, the following errors may appear in the Application log following each reboot:
ID 11502 MSExchangeNNTP Error Initialization of the NNTP external interface failed with error - 2147467259. ID 11303 MSExchangeNNTP Error An error occurred while binding NNTP to SSL in the GetHostName function. ID 11504 MSExchange Pop3 Error Initialization of the POP3 external interface failed with error - 2147467259.
These errors will continue to appear, even if a clean install has been performed.
If TCP/IP has been loaded on to the server and then removed, the above errors will occur whenever Exchange Server 5.0 is loaded on to that server and then rebooted.
Reload TCP/IP on the server and the errors will no longer appear in the Application log.
NNTP and POP3 are native to TCP/IP. Therefore, they are trying to call/perform Winsock32 functions. Because Winsock is not present (because TCP/IP was uninstalled) these errors occur.
