[bump]

Does anyone happen to know whether this problem is fixed/ameliorated by
upgrading from CF8 to CF9?

 There's actually a way to restart just the spool component, which may
 be all you need to get it spooling again
 http://stackoverflow.com/questions/94948/restarting-coldfusion-mail-queue

 I added a file to my cf admin/custom folder, and added to
 custommenu.xml, to restart the mail service:

 div style=margin: 3em;
 cfoutputa href=#CGI.SCRIPT_NAME#?restartMailService=trueRestart
 mail spool service/a/cfoutput

 cfif structKeyExists(URL, restartMailService) AND
 URL.restartMailService IS true
cfset sFactory =
 CreateObject(java,coldfusion.server.ServiceFactory)
cfset MailSpoolService = sFactory.mailSpoolService
cfset MailSpoolService.stop()
h2Mail spool service stopped./h2
cfflush
cfset MailSpoolService.start()
h2Mail spool service restarted!/h2
/cfif
 /div

John,

Anything revealing in your mail log?  I've seen this behavior before, but
not with CF 8. It was with older versions.  We ended up scheduling a nightly
restart of the service to alleviate things like this occurring.

 Typically you'll see an error in your ColdFusion mail.log file that will
state that the connection to your mail server failed at some point.

That didn't happen in this case.

The same thing has happened to use before. I never found any logs 
indicating the cause and a service restart prompted the spooled emails 
to start sending again.

It was just one of the few reasons we put all of our servers on a weekly 
reboot schedule.
