    I use DwMail from Dominion Web and today I noticed that a spammer logged into the server to send spam. Dont know how the hell did, but somehow he used the BCC of the webmail to spam.
    By now I blocked the IP and added some of the text used in the spammed message at modsecurity to mitigate the problem by a moment.

    Is there a way to filter emails sent in/out from this domain until I figure out where is the bug?

    The domain is @uku.co.uk

    Help is required!!!!!

    Thank you!!

    Hi there,

    My may not hace logged in to your server to send spam what they may have done is used Telenet to spoof an email address - I presume you are getting alot of bounce backs to email addresses that are not setup on cPanel?
