    HI,

    I have a dedicated server which is used just for my website.

    Today I noticed alot of emails being returned to my email box all addressed to a random email addy at my domain but sent to random accounts all appearing to be spam.

    I am not that good with this side of servers so want guidance/help in sorting the problem out.

    The headers of the emails look like:
    I'm am getting aload of returned email from users who have out of office auto responds on. The email addy rudino@MYDOMAIN.com doesn't belong to anyone but all @MYDOMAIN.com mail is forwarded to my junk inbox so it seems all spam from: rudino@MYDOMAIN.com is being sent to a load of domains.

    Where is the first place I should look to find out if my server is open or if we have a script on our server spamming?

    All help welcome.

    Thanks

    Thanks for both your replies.

    I disabled the default email addy which I use to like having but nevermind as my life is spam free now. Also it has stopped the emails I mentioned at start being sent.

    The problem I expect was the default email being set to my account so all spam to my domain was forwarded to me and also couldnt existance of accounts when all were existed.

    Thanks for your help.
