    i run vBulletin forum on VPS server
    when i run the follwoin command
    /$ grep "cwd=" /var/log/exim_mainlog | awk '{for(i=1;i<=10;i++){print $i}}' | sort | uniq -c | grep cwd | sort -n

    i get the following massage

    50 cwd=/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot
    200 cwd=/
    22930 cwd=/home/****/public_html/vb
    33248 cwd=/var/spool/exim

    i normaly send newsletter to forum members thats may why the mail send from public_html/vb is high by the question why there is huge numbers of mail from /var/spool/exim

    Hello :)

    "cwd" stands for current working directory. The messages from /var/spool/exim are normal Exim deliveries. This is often excluded from the type of command you are using with an argument such as "grep -v /var/spool".

    Rhank you.
