    Hello,

    The command you used is showing message deliveries as referenced in /var/log/exim_mainlog. This is not an indicator that the messages exist in your mail queue. You can browse to "WHM Home » Email » Mail Queue Manager" to view and search emails in your actual queue.

    As far as the source of outgoing SPAM, the "/etc/csf" entries likely correspond to notification emails sent out by your CSF application, and the "/" emails likely correspond to cPanel & WHM notification emails. If you'd like to search for sources of SPAM, try some of the commands referenced on these threads:

    Locate spam activity

    Thank you.
