    Hi, Just wondering if anyone can suggest some solutions to tracking down spam without the use of phpsuexec or greping 100s of client logs. (Sometimes the information provide in the spam email gives no clue to the spammer, then it just gets real annoying from there )

    - I was thinking about forcing certain headers when the mail() function is ran through php, but not sure if variables are allowed in sendmail_path parameter.
    - Also looked into logging calls to mail() with no avail.


    I would like to go the phpsuexec route, but the instant I install it I will have multiple clients saying their scripts don't work, and they are unable to patch them to work. Last time I attempted to run phpsuexec, I found scripts clients would use that just were unable to run in a suexec environment, and was too much trouble to actually go through fixing it.

    Are the three spaces in the fail message significant or a typo?
