Spammers using server to send out spam email. I adjusted settings to block most of the outgoing emails. Now the emails are still going out but are to and from the same ip address [email protected](sender) and to [email protected](recipient). It looks like the program is using default sender and recipient to continue to use my server. And an email is sent every 5 minutes around the clock. Is there anyway to stop this program all together. I was thinking changing the ip address might solve the problem. My server is down most of the time because of the drain of resources and I have to restart Http apache over and over.
