    Hi,

    One of our clients is sending out thousands of e-mails from our server.
    How do I see who it is ??

    I check the mail logs but there's no obvious user there.
    He's sending one mail but to hundreds of people at time so I can't look
    att the volume or so...

    I have tried checking the exim_main log and can see the e-mails returning
    from AOL who has blocked the server now but not to whom it is sent.

    Anyone ?

    Do you have phpsuexec installed? Have you looked on your server for formmail.cgi and pl as well as formmail.php scripts that are exploitable?

    You can try using Mail Watch as a trouble shooting tool. Tends to be resource intensive so best not used on a regular basis.
