    Hello,

    Does the email notification include additional information about the specific emails detected by CSF in the message body?

    Thank you.

    It's not abnormal to see the IPv6 reference if IPv6 is enabled on the system. It's showing you the messages are coming from the local server. You may need to change the password to the email account if it's sending out excessive numbers of emails.

    Thank you.
