    Hi,

    We have seen boxtrapper creating very high server loads on many servers in the past 3 - 4 days. We had to disable boxtrapper on many accounts that were still sending emails despite being suspended.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    Thanks

    It seems that you need to find out the "true/real" in-house spammer. Find out the script or scripts used to deliver SPAM from your server. I doubt that boxtrapper is the culprit.

    No real spammer. It was just boxtrapper sending out thousands of emails to the same email address like it was stuck in some sort of loop. Same thing on each server that had this problem.

    Go on, have a guess
    I've seen that happen with boxtrapper fighting it out with auto-responders and bounced replies. It's another very good example of why boxtrapper is such a bad idea. I'd suggest disabling boxtrapper on any accounts that are playing email ping-pong, at least until the bouncing emails die out.
