    We have been compromised that this server is sending huge amount of spam.We have received multiple complaints from AOL users to which this spam is sent. I have also received a huge amount of Spam mail in manoj@xicom.biz mail account. Please let me know how can we fix this kind of problem in cpanel.

    There are so many people with the same exact SPAM problem. The best you can do is find out the script or scripts the spammer(s) are using to deliver their spam. You can do many things to secure your server and stop further spam or attacks. Just to mention one, minimize the number of email messages a client can send out. There are many threads in this forum discuss security issues and how to protect your server. Good luck!
