IMO, not NEAR enough RAM for all of this. 96 MB would probably do a
machine with JUST SQL and RADIUS NT, but perhaps not.

My experience with post.office is that HIGH traffic on v1.9.3 will cause
this. Go into the postmaster web admin, and under System Configuration,
System Performance Parameters, set the Maximum number of concurrent network
servers down to 12, and the maximum number of concurrent local processes
down to 6.
Yes, this WILL slow down your mail. But it will also stop the reboots (or
at least, it did for us).
You may want to check to see if you're being used as a spam relay (if your
server is being hijacked). Check the size of your post.office log files.
If they are extraordinarily large (more than half again the size of your
average log)_, then you've been hit. There's no way to stop this with
post.office (not even v3.0). We had to switch to NTMail to correct this
and stop the spammers.

This sounds VERY much like a spammer hit you, and post.office started
spawning extra servers and processes to handle the load. Once it exhausted
memory, poof! Reboot! Lower the limits.

Almost definitely, you were used as a relay. Lower the session limits for
Post Office and it should correct itself once the spam clears (or you can
simply delete the outbound queue in its entirety, losing other mail, too,
but stopping the spew).
