    Hi all,

    Two days ago I went from all our emails being hosted on a separate email hosting package to hosting all of our emails on the VPS.
    I installed dovecot & exim via WHM and have mainly left all the settings as standard.

    I then created all the email addresses in Cpanel.

    Since then - I have noticed that there is a large increase in spam emails to the email addresses that have been recreated.

    Is there something that I have done wrong? Am I now exposing all these new email addresses to spammers somehow?

    Maybe I didn't configure something in dovecot / exim properly?

    Any help and advice would be highly appreciated!
