    For the past few weeks iv been receiving the odd "message delayed" error for emails which I have not been sending.
    When I go to the WHM mail logs and hunt down some of these emails they are all originating from local host via a user account which is hosting a joomla based site.

    I have to admit I'm a bit of a noob at this but Im guessing this means its originating from a script. How should one go about hunting down the specific script which is causing this issue? I'm assuming there are specific log files I should enable/view/?

    thanks!
