Occasional crash of Smartermail
Question asked by Christian Schmit - 2/10/2015 at 9:12 AM
On one of our Smartermail servers we occasionally encounter a crash of Smartermail (about 4 times per year).
We already went though this problem with Smartertools support and their conclusion was that the .NET installation is corrupt.
Some information about this Smartermail installation:
Server: Dell R720 (32GB RAM) with hardware Raid-10 using 10k SAS drives
OS: Windows 2012 Server Standard with .NET 4.5.2 and all updates installed
Smartermail version 13.2 using IIS 
Message traffic handled by this server: approx. 38000 emails per day
The server is dedicated to Smartermail, there are no other applications on this server.
During the last 12 months this problem happened only 4 times.
03 Apr 2014 (smartermail v11.7)
25 Aug 2014 (smartermail v12.3)
02 Sept 2014 (smartermail v12.3)
07 Feb 2015 (smartermail v13.2)
Windows log shows the following 2 errors (within the same second) when smartermail is crashing:

Did anybody already encounter/solve a similar problem?
Is uninstalling / reinstalling .NET the way to go?
Could upgrading to Wndows 2012 R2 be an option?
