Hi, We are looking into this issue further, at present I can suggest that rather then rebooting server you could open the Task Manager and end the process of the dllhost.dll that is running with user IME_ADMIN. To find this it is required that you add the username column to the processes window.

To help us better understand the issue could you please zip up your configuration files at the follwoing location and send them through to us.

I just found this same thing happening...

I was getting an error message in my IE 6.0 browser that said "too many users connected". I noticed the dllhost.exe task on the email server in Task Manager was taking more than 60% of the system resources, although no one but me was connected. I stopped and started the IIS services to no avail. I stopped and started the ME Pro services to no avail. I restarted the system, and webmail is going again.

Is this happening to more and more people? I just downloaded v1.18 and installed it last week. Up until then, I was running v1.12 for over 8 months and NEVER had this once.


Same Issue

We also have having a very similiar problem just startted today. dllhost.exe spikes the cpu and eventually the entire machine fails to respond. We cannot stop WWW service or kill dllhost.exe. Ben you mentioned that we should include the username column in task manager. I do not see this as a column otpion on any of the win 2000 servers?

I had seen this issue if a user with a very large mailbox tries to use webmail this happens but usually only for a short time this time it appears that it never ends unless you reboot the server. We also are running the latest version.

Please help.

The server goes to 100% cpu usage by the dllhost.exe when the webmail is used, i want to support for 2000 webmail accounts but with this bug that is imposible.

This issue should be fixed in the 1.19 Beta

Cheers, Ben.
