Hi, I am currently getting spammed by the server with this email

"Use of uninitialized value $domain in hash element at /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/eximstats_spam_check line 223."

I already got more than 10 of these between the 2 days and I don't seem to get what is it about? I have one suspicion as one of the websites is being tagged as a phishing site by google but we are working on fixing the problem. Could this potentially cause the issue?

Hello @Kamil Brand Nova,

Internal case CPANEL-22678 is open to address an issue where /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/eximstats_spam_check returns an error message like this when the cPanel username itself (as opposed to an individual email account) is detected as a potential spammer:

Use of uninitialized value $domain in hash element at /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/eximstats_spam_check line 223.

I'll monitor this case and update this thread with more information on it's status as it becomes available. In the meantime, you may want to setup an email filter that discards emails with body contents matching the error message noted above.

Thank you.

Just wanted to mention we are also occasionally getting this error when sending out e-mail from the server.

Code:
Subject: Cron <[email protected]> /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/eximstats_spam_check 2>&1

Cron Daemon 8:05 AM (28 minutes ago)
Use of uninitialized value $domain in hash element at /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/eximstats_spam_check line 223.
