    I have a recurrent problem with an account that sends SPAM
    so I was wondering how can it be possible that the email password
    can be compromised several times.

    Hello @albatroz

    In some cases, this can happen if the mail user is using a mail client from a computer that is infected. Are you sure the compromise is a password compromise and not a script on the server that is responsible for sending mail?


    Thanks!
