    Hello,

    Could you search for that message ID in /var/log/exim_mainlog to see if you can find more information? EX:

    Code:
    exigrep MSGID /var/log/exim_mainlog
    Thank you.

    Hello,

    The following line indicates the source of the message:

    It's either SPAM, or a bounced message from "adamsdvg@user.co.uk". You may want to investigate that account to verify no SPAM messages are sent.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Right, the message was sent to a blackhole since you have configured that for messages sent to email addresses that do not exist. The logs you provided show the message comes from "63a8ec45-4c69-40b6-91bb-ead948336ab3@$domain", but it's simply not included in the user interface from field due to the nature of the email address.

    Thank you.
