This post discusses an issue we have found with the FNCW and Exchange 2007. The symptom is that you receive the following error when running the Internet Address Management Wizard:
“The wizard cannot configure Exchange e-mail for your domain. To correct this problem, run the Fix my network task on the Connectivity subtab of the Network tab of the Windows SBS Console.”
However, when you run the FNCW to fix this issue, it fails and you receive the following error:
“The server cannot connect the SMTP connectors. Ensure that Exchange is running, and then try again.”

To resolve this issue, use the Exchange Management Console to either manually create the default receive connector or correct the authentication and permission group settings for the existing one. Afterwards, the FNCW will successfully fix your SMTP connectors.
To create a new connector:
When correcting the authentication and permission group settings for an existing connector, follow steps 7, 8, and 9.
