    Can you explain how? I am having the same issue. Some user is using a PHP loop to send SPAM.

    - shutdown exim
    - restart apache so the php file isn't looping
    - backup the account
    - disable the account (you may want to remove it)
    - startup exim
    - contact your legal advisor to take legal steps agains your client

    few of the best solutions i would adapt

    - keep a average horuly limit for sending mails
    - enable phpsuexec, disable nobody from sending mails and extended logging for exim (helps tracking the exact script)
