    So I have been experiencing some issues with my host lately and they emailed me with this log. I don't know what is causing the excessive resource usage but i may have an idea that it could be email spam? Anyone know how to prevent this?

    Code:

    Hey,

    Check the status of exim mail queue, find if there are any scripts employed
    which is causing this issues, or if the any email account under the domain
    is compromised ?

    Hello :)

    Check with your hosting provider to see if they can provide you more details about those emails. The message headers might show more information, such as the path to a script that is sending out emails.

    Thank you.
