MTA Problem

A couple of suggestions.

1) Do you see any helpful messages in the Applications portion of the Event
Viewer? If not, try turning up logging a bit to see if that yields any more

2) You could create a server monitor which would start services that have
stopped. This is a band-aid thing and would not really help diagnose your
problem as much as it would help cut down on the length of time that the
MTA is down.
