My server on which I host a Joomla community site has been sending out Spam emails over that past few days.

I have looked on here and set up all that I can in cPanlel/WHM but the mail queue is still filling up.

The emails are being sent as [email protected], [email protected] & [email protected] and many other legitimate sounding names; none of which are real mailboxes. My hosting provider, heart internet has had a look at it but can't determine the cause.

Any advice will be happily welcomed.

Hello :)

You may need to change the password for your cPanel account, and ensure all passwords are updated for your Joomla script. Also, check to make sure your Joomla script is updated to the latest version. Your hosting providers should be able to review the message headers to help find the source of the SPAM.

Thank you.
