    I have been searching and searching to see if our server is being spammed. I have grepped through a bunch of the logs and such, but don't see any formmail stuff being sent out.

    I just don't know all of the ways the spammers could be sending out mail. Can anyone list all of the different things to look for spam?

    For example, I see a bunch of these in my mail statistics:

    1 yqklklsoloTwil223@aol.com R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp:
    SMTP error from remote mailer after RCPT TO::
    host mailin-02.mx.aol.com [64.12.137.184]: 550 MAILBOX NOT FOUND

    2 yqklklsoloTwil223@aol.com R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp:
    SMTP error from remote mailer after RCPT TO::
    host mailin-04.mx.aol.com [152.163.224.122]: 550 MAILBOX
    NOT FOUND

    2 yqklklsoloTwil223@aol.com R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp:
    SMTP error from remote mailer after RCPT TO::
    host mailin-04.mx.aol.com [205.188.156.154]: 550 MAILBOX
    NOT FOUND

    1 yqklklsoloTwil223@aol.com R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp:
    SMTP error from remote mailer after RCPT TO::
    host mailin-04.mx.aol.com [64.12.138.89]: 550 MAILBOX NOT FOUND

    they just seem to fill up my mail statics with errors. I am wondering how I can track where this is actually comming from? It just always seems to be a random name@domain.com....

    here is something else I found in my exim_rejected log file..:

    2003-05-31 06:59:38 refused relay (host) to <Nosey@aol.com> from <aiaiaai@aol.com> H=pool-141-157-201-15.ny325.e
    ast.verizon.net (mailin-02.mx.aol.com) [141.157.201.15]


    I have about a thousand of those, all going to different address's, but from the same person. I am assuming since it is in the rejected log I don't have to worry about these ones?
