    I am getting a bunch of messages sent from my server and cannot detect where it is occuring. Have I been hacked and any suggestion of eliminating. Below is a copy of what I am receiving back.

    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

    host mailserver2.domain.mb.ca [142.16.xx.xx]: 554-mailserver2.domain.mb.ca
    554 Your access to this mail system has been rejected due to the sending MTA's poor reputation. If you believe that this failure is in error, please contact the intended recipient via alternate means.

    Hello :)

    I recommend searching /var/log/exim_mainlog for the failed destination email address to see if you can get a better idea of where the message is sent from. EX:

    Code:
    exigrep user@remote-domain /var/log/exim_mainlog
    Thank you.
