    The mail spool has more than 4096 messages!


    Why is this happening, someone is using my server to send MASS emails out and I am in trouble with my host.

    What type of mails are going out?

    From the headers can you identify which account has been compromised?
    It could be a compromised password or a compromised form on the website.

    In WHM >> Tweak Settings do you have this option selected:
    Prevent “nobody” from sending mail
