I thought I gave the symptoms here above:

After a couple of hours (like 2 or 3), when I had composed an email and was
sending it (I had pressed C-c C-c), Emacs wrote "Sending email..." (or
similar) in the echo area. Normally, that message disappears after a couple of
seconds, and I'm back to the Group buffer.

Here, that message did not disappear. After 1 minute or so, I thought that
Emacs was hanging. I checked my Internet connection, that was OK.

But seconds later, Emacs still prompted me:

    Memory exhausted--use C-x s then exit and restart Emacs

in the echo area, and

    Emergency (alloc): Warning: past 95% of memory limit

in a popup buffer.

I went back to the draft of the email, and tried again, but the message never
got sent. So, I restarted Emacs as stated.

These are the symptoms that I observed. Do you expect anything else?

Clearly, I should have looked at the memory footprint of Emacs, but (for
reasons which escape me now), I unfortunately did not. But I thought that the
messages only would help you localizing the cause of the problem.

Best regards,
  Seb
