    Root is sending 2 emails to each user accounts from root@hostname... to user1@hostname... and user2@hostname every minute until daily limit is reached. How do I find out what the mail is and why is it sending?

    I cant find where the mail is being sent to to read it as it is being sent to username@server-hostname...

    Hello,

    You can search for the messages in /var/log/exim_mainlog with a command such as:

    Code:
    exigrep root@hostname /var/log/exim_mainlog
    Could you let us know a few examples of messages in the output from this command related to the issue you are describing?

    Thank you.

    Get into the user's Cpanel and use webmail (under e-mail accounts) to access user1@hostname or user2@hostname's e-mail.
