    Check Windows for any hung processes. Perhaps could be a memory issue with the server. Maybe a freak coincidence eg: blackout & UPS finally ran out of juice?
    Fingers crossed for the blackout

    It is not a freak accident.

    It is not a hung process.

    And it is a memory issue.

    OK then, some ideas:
    Do you have enough memory?
    Check your server is fully patched and packed on the windows side.
    Consider reinstalling Domino straight over the top (be sure to have a cold/ open file able backup)
    What was the memory issue/ error/ info?
    What is the server doing? (eg: are you running 50 rules on a very busy SMTP server)
    Where did it get to on the restart?
