    Hello, I have dealt with this problem for over five years and have tried everything and I am determined to get rid of this problem so hopefully you guys can help. I am not tech savy when it comes to linux so that is why I am struggling. When I login to WHM I occasionally see emails in all CAPS text in the Mail Queue Manager. When I view the email it is some spam type message. I manually delete them but they reappear. When I click on the View Mail Statistics link in WHM It displays this list and none of those domains are mine and the ones in all CAPS are the spammy ones: (I removed ones I recongized like PayPal from the list in this post)

    My sites use scripts that send automated emails such as user registration and new topic notifications. Please tell me what I have to do to prevent the spam? Thanks!


    Ok it looks like a new spam email appeared in my mail que since creating this topic. I will copy and paste what it says and I replaced my real domain with "my_domain_here" in this post:

    Here are the headers I think that is what they are called:

    mailnull 47 12
    1210165813 0
    -ident mailnull
    -received_protocol local
    -body_linecount 2777
    -max_received_linelength 163
    -frozen 1210165813
