i have a strange problem with a windows server 2003 machine. it seems to crash on any activity on port 25. this box is set up such that users remote to it using terminal services, and users log into it and use office programs and outlook. it also has some cms software installed on it which will cause the system to reboot whenever you use it to send an email out.
this computer is not running exchange server or an email server as far as they can tell. the machine is set to use their isp's smtp server.
so i tried to telnet port 25 to the mail server they use and it caused the machine to reboot. then when i terminal service back in i try to telnet to port 25 on localhost and it rebooted. then i tried to ftp to a server on 25 and it also rebooted.
this just started happening the other day and i am told nothing was changed on the system.
on reboot, i get the following message about a stop error.
0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0x80a933db, 0xf5c8cb1c, 0x00000000
