  • Is it possible it got deleted? Check adsiedit.

    Start the Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) Edit tool. To do this, click Start, click Run, type adsiedit.msc, and then click OK.

    Note The ADSI Edit tool is included with the Windows Support Tools. To install the Windows Support Tools, double-click Setup.exe in the Support\Tools folder on the Microsoft Windows 2000 Server CD.

    1. Locate the default virtual server container (CN=1) in the configuration container. To do this, follow these steps:
    2. Expand Configuration Container [<var>DomainControllerName</var>.<var>example</var>.com], expand CN=Configuration,DC=<var>example</var>,DC=com, and then expand CN=Services.
    3. Expand CN=Microsoft Exchange, expand CN=<var>OrganizationGroupName</var>, and then expand CN=Administrative Groups.
    4. Expand CN=<var>AdministrativeGroupName</var>, expand CN=Servers, and then expand CN=<var>ExchangeServerName</var>.
    5. Expand CN=Protocols, and then expand CN=SMTP.
    6. Right-click CN=1, and then click Properties. (Do you see this this corresponds to your SMTP VS)
