    Hey there,

    I think Abuse.net have a popular one... (Googles)

    http://www.abuse.net/relay.html

    You can try that for basic testing. Sometimes - and I've seen it a lot actually - someone brute forces a Squirrelmail account or Horde, and this causes the problems you may see. Do you have any reason to believe you're being used for spamming?

    Do you have any headers we could check out to help?

    Also, popular things people do is hack via XSS (Cross Site Scripting) and upload some PHP mailer scripts, which they use to exploit your server to spam.

    Just a few tips, let us know if you need more help. :)

    Regards,
