    My email is being sent really slow lately. I was checking exim logs and I noticed some strange things like
    This message keeps appearing multiple times over a short period.

    also
    That email is not in any of my lists. So is someone trying to send trough my server ? Its a VPS with dedicated IPs so I assume noone else is using them (might be wrong here)


    Some time ago the whole VPS went offline for a few days - support couldnt fix it, they just kept telling me they are working on it. In the console it said it can't access container. I asked them to transfer me to another container and transfer the IPs too. and again the sending speed is very slow and I get these messages in exim logs. I scanned for trojans in WHM, pinged the server, ran a speed test (wiht 10M.bin file), ran unix benchmark - everything appears normal.
    So any help with this ?

    Those messages all appear normal to me, your server is blocking as needed. Do you have CSF installed and/or Brute Force Protection enabled?

    cpHulk is enabled. I just checked its log and there are about 20 IPs with large number of attempts. Is there a way to whitelist only one IP so its the only one capable of logging in ?

    Login to what exactly, email? Those errors are all email related.
