Hmailserver hangs (SMTP service), strange error message

I discover SMTP service stops working and we have an error message as stated in this screenshot:

Users do not receive any mail. Imap was working fine.

There were +/-10 mails in the queue list.

We start first to restart the service - no effect
We then first to restart the server - no effect
Then we clean up the queue list, and the problem seems to be solved. Users get a flow of new emails in one shot.

What's happen ?


PS: I activate logging now to trace traffic.

Without having logging enabled, it's impossible to say what hapened.

What do you mean that it had no effect when you restarted the service? Did the crash occur immediately again?

no. It seems to be ok now.

This is very strange.

Which log should I enable ? Debug log generates big files !
