    I found something disturbing. There are strange names in "Top email relayers". What is this really? There is also listed real users, but the ones below is not real (I get Invalid user [Groceries] for instance if I click the names)

    Top Email Relayers
    Below are list of users who have relayed mail. They are listed in the order by number of messages sent. You can click on the user/domain to view the message recipient.

    maximum 1 1234
    you 1 2026
    Better 1 17664
    you." 1 1068
    Groceries 1 21285
    friend" 1 951
    you" 1 1430
    P\345l 1 1080
    your 1 26052

    I'm also seeing this sort of unusual "user" in the Top relayers. Many of the users appear to be fragments of subject headers or something like that.

    Does this mean the server is compromised and sending spam, or does it just mean that the exim stats are corrupted and need to be cleaned out?

    Go on, have a guess
    It probably just means that the regex in the cPanel script isn't working correctly on certain emails.
