        Besides to aplly Service Pack 4 for MS Exchange Server, you should
check your hard disk, because its seeming you have a disk problem.

        When you cant even open the windows explorer, you might be having a
disk problem. I would try to run chkdsk with its available options.

        The number of the members of your DL is not big at all. The size of
the message neither.
