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!
