    It is possible that the account "myspace", if exists on your server, is either having a bad script sending out spam, or having huge mailing list, or the client him/herself sending out spam.

    I am having the same issue sending our newsletter. Has only happened since upgrading to cpanel/whm V11 and exim.

    Happens only when we try and send out newsletter out to 21,000+ members

    10:41:59 up 9:33, 3 users, load average: 206.22, 262.10, 356.29


    have had per minute loads of 900
