    Server overloaded - one process taking up lots of resources - MSQL - I did a trace and the database is eximstats

    Any advice on troubleshooting this ?

    If I kill the process, it happens again

    Was a user with 500MB mailbox - looks lke a spam attack.

    You can reset eximstats to 0 kb at MySQL prompt. If this doesn't help, you need to find out who is causing the spam and suspend that client. Better yet, protecting and securing your server.
