Cause

This issue can occur if the service is configured to use a domain account such as the Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 service account instead of the local system account.

The Exchange services require that the local system account be used.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, ensure that the local system account is being used:
  1. Under the Computer Management console tree, open the Services and Applications node.
  2. Open Services, and then click the appropriate Exchange services.
  3. For each service, right-click the service, and then click Properties to open the properties of each service.
  4. Click the Log on tab and ensure that the local system account is selected.
