    My server recently froze up, after restarting I realized the mail server had failed.

    Looking around to see what the problem might be, I clicked on the mail queue and saw that there were 5,000+ undelivered emails.

    After looking through the first 10, I noticed the majority were Viagra ads, with the "from" address somethingRandom@myDomain.com

    Would I be correct to assume that a spammer is sending out these emails, with my domain as the FROM address, the emails are being bounced back, and my server is now trying to re-send them?


    How exactly do I stop these emails from appearig in my mail queue?
