    i dont know how to fix this. the emails dont come from an ip they seem to come from localhost?!?

    Code:
    2016-10-12 19:47:35 SMTP connection from [144.76.xx.xx]:45606 (TCP/IP connection count = 3)
    2016-10-12 19:47:35 SMTP connection identification H=localhost A=144.76.xx.xx P=45606 U=example ID=919 S=example B=identify_local_connection
    2016-10-12 19:47:35 H=atlas.tsweb.name (example.gr) [144.76.xx.xx]:35042 sender verify fail for <Blanche23@example.gr>: No Such User Here
    2016-10-12 19:47:35 H=atlas.tsweb.name (example.gr) [144.76.xx.xx]:35042 X=TLSv1:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:128 CV=no F=<Blanche23@example.gr> rejected RCPT <someusr@gmail.com>: Sender verify failed
    2016-10-12 19:47:35 H=atlas.tsweb.name (example.gr) [144.76.xx.xx]:45606 X=TLSv1:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:128 CV=no F=<Blanche23@example.gr> rejected RCPT <someusr@gmail.com>: Sender verify failed
    2016-10-12 19:47:35 H=atlas.tsweb.name (example.gr) [144.76.xx.xx]:45606 sender verify fail for <Blanche23@example.gr>: No Such User Here

    so i need to switch to mod_ruid2 to track down those emails...

    i am currently on suphp, is it safe for me to go to mod_ruid2 ? this is a production server.

    If you have suPHP you should automatically be able to track the abusive / compromised user.


    The U=example is the user you want to check.
