Internet Mail Server hangs on startup, ID 7022, why?

A. A FAQ reader recently brought this to my attention who after changing RAS in the network applet to only dial out and rebooting the server the NT event viewer showed an error message saying that The Internet Mail Server hung on start up ID7022. This occurs even if you install Exchange server to NT4 where RAS incoming call handling is disabled. The RAS setting was changed and the event was still generated.

This was resolved by re-enabling the Incoming and outgoing dial access in RAS-> Network -> control applet. In Control panel -> Services selecting RAS Connection manager and setting it to start up as automatic and RAS Access Server and setting it to start up as automatic.
