Hmailserver suddenly used up all memory

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me here. This afternoon, the desktop machine that's used as a mailserver made a loud noise as if it was running some kind of big software. It's very very slow when I went to check what's occupying the CPU under Windows Task Manager. The CPU usage was 100% under Performance tab. Then, look to Processes - it was HMailserver that's using 99% of the CPU. It went for a while (approx 5 to 10 minutes). I ended up re-starting the computer and it's back to normal since then. I went to check the log under HMailserver directory. The latest error file i could find was a two days ago one (i.e. 14 Jan 08). To my knowledge, this has never happen before. I don't know if it ever happen before. All i know is it happen today. Is this all right or anything i can do to find out what's caused it to happen?

Thank you in advance

Doesn't sound all right to me but you need to have the normal logs enabled to troubleshoot it. Did you have the logs enabled?
