    Hi Guys,
    I am very new to all of this so please bare with me and please feel free to offer any advice or recommendations.

    I moved all our services over from plesk last week and I must say cPanel really is kicking ass. I am having an issue at the minute though with a sub-domain, it is sending an awful lot of emails, the majority of which are to yahoo.com, this actually caused us to get blacklisted, I looked into the issue and with some help we figured out that we had 2 contact forms on this sub domain without a "CAPTCHA" and this seems to be the source of the problem.

    I have been keeping a close eye on the EXIM queue however the sub domain is still sending out mail but I can't figure out from where? The site on the sub domain is built in wordpress and I have disabled the contact form plugin that it was using.

    The domain in question is weddings.bnlproductions.co.uk

    Any help or advice you can give me is much appreciated.

    It seemed running:
    grep cwd /var/log/exim_mainlog | grep -v /var/spool | awk -F"cwd=" '{print $2}' | awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

    returned this:
    85782 /mnt/home/bnlproductions/public_html/weddings/wp-content/plugins/LayerSlider/static/skins/lightskin

    which pointed towards a plugin issue, I have disabled that plugin now and will wait and see if our queue builds up again.
