My guess is something is corrupted in your messaging queues.  Here is what I do and it usually fixes the abend problem:

1) Unload the MTA, POA, GWIA
2) In your domain directory (serviced by the MTA) rename the following:

3) In your post office directory (directories if you have multiple POs on this server) rename:

4) Inside the domain directory, find WPGATE and then find GWIA under it and rename the following:

Restart all of the agents.  If there is an abend on the box, reboot which will auto-restart the agents unless you've remarked them in the autoexec.ncf

Next, especially at the PO.  Navigate into the renamed wpcsout\ofs\0-7 directories and if there are messages, cut and paste (not copy) into the newly created ones.  There may be real messages in these directories that need to be delivered.  You'll find administrative messages in wpcsout\ads\0-7 too.  Likewise in the GWIA directory look in the send, receive, result (we don't care about defer) and in the wpcsin\gwixxxx and the wpcsout\gwixxxx structures for messages and move them into the new directories.

Once empty, I always delete the old renamed directories everywhere.
