Server froze at night
For the first time ever my server froze. The screen was showing the
crtl-alt-del login screen, but the keyboard was useless and the maouse was
the same. Communications from the internet were dead and trying to contact
the server from the LAN was the same. My WM phone could not connect to
exchange. I had to press the power button to turn off the server and power
it on again. This happened at night.
I've been checking the logs and nothing shows, the backup that was running
at the time was not completed (is there a log?) Do you have any pointers to
where to look?

Does anyone know why it is that when I open an email in Outlook which comes
in as an HTML doc, and try to respond to it, the format of the response
converts it to plain text format in a hideous courier font? Which cannot be
converted into HTML because the option is grayed out?
Is this in some way related to the reason why I cannot now respond to emails
without getting a warning that something is trying to access Microsoft Word
and should I allow it and if so for how long? Whatever option I try, the
result is the same, either Word opens as it should, as Word seems to open as

Is there a way to specify a relative path to an XML data file imported into
