If you haven't installed another application on the server, it is most likely the Microsoft SMTP service that is causing the problem.
Installing or configuring Microsoft's Internet Information Server (IIS) is normally the reason that this error occurs in Domino, as the (Windows) SMTP service is part of the IIS installation in Windows 2000 (which is a default install option on Windows 2000 -- you have to deselect this during the software install if you don't want IIS running on the machine). If you haven't tried running the Domino SMTP task previously, then you may not have realized that Windows was already running its own SMTP service.
Check your MMC using the services snap-in to see whether the "Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP)" Windows service has started. If it has, stop the service, and change its start-up settings to "Disable."
Once this has been done, reload your Domino SMTP task by typing "Load SMTP" at the server console or by using the Domino administrator client to start the task.
