Explanation
This error may be seen in the application log after you configure and attempt to start additional virtual servers for the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), Post Office Protocol version 3 (POP3), or Internet Message Access Protocol Version 4 rev1 (IMAP4) services in Exchange 2000 Server. Also, the virtual servers that you added do not start.

This issue can occur because TCP/IP, which includes the SMTP, POP3, and IMAP4 protocols, requires a unique socket for each instance. A TCP/IP socket is composed of an Internet Protocol (IP) address and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) port pair. To generate a unique socket, either the TCP port or the IP

address of each instance must be unique to the given virtual server.

   
User Action
Provide a unique IP address for each additional virtual server.
