comment Trying to get an old 32-bit service (.dll) to run on a Windows 2008 server
Thanks for your help man! I found the reason. I tried to make a "user" account with the name of the service + using Windows authentication for the SQL-connection in the ODBC - and using the WoW64 version ... NOW it works HURRAY!!!

aaah, the first R2 server (64-bit) didnt have this configured, but now it says: "TESTS COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY!" in the ODBC in Wow64... good! The other one, which I posted above is a 32-bit server (win2008 data center) to see if 32-bit OS would make any difference.

Btw. since my intial post I've been able to see the custom logfile (from the service) is actually working (I am logged in as the user account I've created for the service). I've also tried to have a look on the SQL database as its moved from an old SQL 2000 to a SQL 2008 express (the database is only around 10 mb)

I did set it up manually, but I didnt know about the two versions. I'll have to check upon that. Great advice.

comment Sending email without mail gateway?
@Robert Moir, true there are alternatives from Microsoft too. The one included with the IIS I'm not trusting very much either. So better keep the SMTP services on a "real mail platform". But thats just me.

comment SQL server 2000, replication over WAN
Will have a go at this, I am trying to configure the production server as "Distributer" AND "publisher" as I would like it to publish the data as backup to our secondary.

okay, provided the ERROR below the first answer now + my steps to reproduce it as I tested the suggestion. "SQL Server Enterprise Manager could not configure '.... SQL2000' as the Distributor for '.... SQL2000'. Error 14114: (null) is not configured as a Distributor"
