XAMPP MercuryMail shutdown unexpectedly

When MercuryMail shuts down unexpectedly, you get the following message on XAMPP control panel:

Error: Mercury shutdown unexpectedly.
6:25:56 PM  [mercury]     This may be due to a blocked port, missing dependencies,
6:25:56 PM  [mercury]     improper privileges, a crash, or a shutdown by another method.
I restarted Mercury but that did not help.

However this worked for me. Open up your Mercury's /QUEUE directory. It should be located somewhere at "C:\xampp1.8.3\MercuryMail\QUEUE". There should be one or more *.QCF files. Delete all of them. Then start Mercury from XAMPP Control Panel.
