What to do

This problem may be due to IIS not running.

  1. Check the Sophos PureMessage services to make sure they are all started and can be re-started OK.
  2. Then try to do an IIS reset: at a command prompt, type 
    IISreset /restart
  3. Press Return.
  4. If this fails, the problem is with IIS and not PureMessage. Contact Microsoft for assistance.
