Update Rollup 3 for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1

This (KB949870), was applied by Windows Update last night, and I woke up to no incoming email. On investigation, I found that there was no smtp (25) port open, and that the Microsoft Exchange Transport hadn't started after the reboot.

I attempted to manually start the service, but no joy as it timed out after 30 seconds. I reviewed the event logs, nothing there, tried again and it worked. Did a trawl back through the event logs when the server restarted, and again nothing. There were some eventid 3001\3003 from the EvntAgnt (log file not at end) so I may be missing some logs.

The only other issue I can think of, is that this is a single server Exchange 2007 installation - I.e. The transport service is running on the same server as the mailboxes rather than on a separate edge server. I would think this receives no testing by Microsoft!

I will have to monitor this the next time I reboot. Is anyone else having this issue?
