    I just received a lot of complaints about spam sent by our server. I saw that there were sent about 20 000 messages. I the footer of the e-mail message I saw in dutch the following line: "this e-mail was sent using the service of XXXX.TLD". However the spam message was a nigerian scam message in english. I have some of the message sent by that customer. Also I backupped the mail queue and removed the messages in it. But now I would like to know if it is possible to find the ip address of the server of the messages. I know that exim has a SMTP authentication. But where do I find any information about the sender of the messages?

    Many thanks in advance! :D

    submit 1 of the emails with full headers and body to spamcop, the result will show the source of it.

    I didn't say to submit the results but that's up to you, just read the source IP the results show.
