    Hey guys.

    I have a report from spamcop of a spammer comming from my server.

    I have a copy of the email including subject and content of email.

    I have mail-watch running but does not show a clear account on this.

    I have also viewed logs to no avail.

    What is a quick way to search through exim with this information to track down the spammer?

    If you have the headers the easiest way would be to start doing greps of the exim logs for information in that header. Search for usernames and the addresses they sent to.

    Go on, have a guess
    Also, the messageid field is extremely useful for searching the exim_mainlog file.
