    Hello. We started getting these messages the other day. I've checked, and formmail isn't installed on that domain (or any domain on the server).

    Is this an attempt at spamming by someone ot there? What log files should I check?

    I tend to see this with users running some sort of script, such as a message board. The user puts their address in incorrectly, but instead of the bounce going to the webmaster, it comes back to us...

    This is someone trying to exploit the formmail scripts in /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys
