    Hello :)

    The following arrow symbols are useful:

    Code:
    <=
    =>
    As you can see, it uses "=>" for outgoing email to "spiteqvq5@exampl.com".

    Thank you.

    You will find several threads on our forums related to this. Try searching the forums for "detect spam" or similar terms and there will be several results to look through.

    Thank you.

    Hello Michael,

    Thanks for the reply. I can easily find out/catch the spammer at run time. Means when spammer sending spam mails that time I can monitor the mail queue, check the message header and body using message Id but when someone domain sending spam mails and I am not monitoring queue or not in office. Then how to check the mail header and body of that mails. I hope you understand my query.

    Thanks,
    Imran Khan.

    Mail Troubleshooter
    Repair Mailbox permissions
    View Mail Statistics
    View Relayers

    Version:- cPanel 11.25.0-S46156 - WHM 11.25.0 - X 3.9

    Thanks,
    Imran Khan.

    Hello Michael,

    I understand your concern. This server is in production so I cannot update Cpanel.
    Please suggest me on my spammer finder query.

    Thanks,
    Imran Khan.

    You may want to review Security | cPanel, Inc. - not directly related to instances of spamming perhaps.

    I honestly can't remember when the options were introduced, but if you're concerned with blocking large sends that may be spam you can enable checks like max messages that can be sent per hour / max failures per hour in tweak settings.

    There is also the option to scan outgoing messages with spam assassin in the exim config

    SpamAssassin Options I can't say I've ever actually tried that one so unsure if it can cause chaos ;)

    The fact that this is a production server is actually more of a reason to update. Newer versions of cPanel patch previously known bugs and security vulnerabilities. In addition, there are several new features since version 11.25 that are available to combat SPAM. If you are truly against updating, you can still search for email activity in the following log file:

    Code:
    /var/log/exim_mainlog
    Thank you.
