    Hi Everybody,
    I searchout the forum but I didn't find the answer.

    Few moment back I logged into my server via WHM and found that Server Load is very high :

    Server Load = 60.2 (apprx.)

    It was frequently going up and down.

    I checked the Mail Queue but no mails were there. Then I went to the SSH and go to the /var/spool/exim/input

    I was shocked to see that there were hell lot of mail in that. It was really amazing that there is no mail under Mail Queue but there are actually lot of mail under mail queue.

    PS : On my server there is only one account who have SSH access.

    Actually I don't know how to trace it. For the time being I have Stopped Exim and MailScanner. But I think as soon as I start them the whole Queue will again start.

    Please tell me how to track this spammer and how to stop this queue from being delivered because they also may contain some of my important mails.

    Thankx in advance. Waiting for some immediate help :(

    Now the mail Queue is displaying the messages.
    There are currently 48928 messages in the mail queue
