That usually means something is interfering with the email traffic - antivirus, antispam, firewall etc. Can also be something scanning something it shouldn't. Something has changed or been reset as a change like that doesn't occur for no reason.

You need to look at the path the messages take, what applications the messages pass through and remove or reconfigure them until you find the cause.

Not really - because there are so many things it can be - including services outside of your control.

If you have AV software installed on the machine then you should ensure that it is not scanning any of the Exchange, logs or database areas with any kind of real time scan.
If you have SMTP scanning on the firewall then you should look to disable it.
If your email comes in through another service then you need to ask them if they are doing something - perhaps they have added or changed something in error.

This sort of thing does not happen without a cause. Something has changed. Whether it is something with you or elsewhere I cannot say.
