How many Hosts and VMs do you have ?

once at 10GB Express will stop, and vCenter Service will stop and abort, and terminate.

SQL Express is too small, for that infrastructure

I would recommend you use SQL FULL or switch to the appliance, you will exceed 10GB, and have to constantly clear the tasks and events tables.

I'm second Andrew.
Btw, SQLMail should never be used since it has security issues.

At least chose a comment that really has the solution and not a question.
