Hopefully someone can help me out here, everyday at midnight my server load starts to increase and I get two email messages:

Code:
FAILED: spamd on SERVER NAME

erver socket setup failed, retry 1: spamd: could not create IO::Socket::INET6 socket on [127.0.0.1]:783: Address already in use
server socket setup failed, retry 2: spamd: could not create IO::Socket::INET6 socket on [127.0.0.1]:783: Address already in use

Mem:
Used: 1473MB
Available: 6508MB
Installed: 7982MB

Load Information:	15.50 16.63 14.63
And second email:
Code:
RECOVERED: spamd on SERVER

spamd check was successful after restart.

Startup Log:	
Failed to fetch startup_log for “spamd” because of an error: 
Jan 25 00:29:14 SERVER spamd[5888]: prefork: child states: I 
Jan 25 00:29:14 SERVER spamd[5893]: spamd: result: Y 999 - GTUBE,NO_RECEIVED,NO_RELAYS scantime=0.2,size=834,user=cpanel,uid=32001,required_score=5.0,rhost=localhost,raddr=127.0.0.1,rport=60612,mid=<[email protected]>,autolearn=no autolearn_force=no,shortcircuit=no

Jan 25 00:29:13 SERVER spamd[5893]: spamd: setuid to cpanel succeeded
I am not sure why the load goes up so high, also the second email always has the same line:
Code:
spamd: result: Y 999 - GTUBE,NO_RECEIVED,NO_RELAYS scantime=0.2,size=834,user=cpanel,uid=32001,required_score=5.0,rhost=localhost,raddr=127.0.0.1,rport=60612,mid=<[email protected]>,autolearn=no autolearn_force=no,shortcircuit=no
Not sure if it is in reference to an email that is causing the issue or what?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

THANKS!
