Yes Bruce, I agree with Robert's and Brian's wrote. Your machine maybe to
weak to operate alot of stuff. 

If you want to focus on publishing your web, I think you better seperate
your web server and mail server in different machine. Hence the task of
the server will seperate too and in a peak operation, the machine will not
refused connection :-). Of course before you decided to seperate it, you
have to see the traffic statistic of your server. Are there abandon hit to
your web server or are there abandon email to or from your mail server ?. 
Considering this reason, I think you could decided a good decission :-).
