    In Cpanel, under the Email ---> View Relayers it gives a list of relayers. Usually, for Cpanel its somewhere between 2-3 hundred. Right now its at almost 3000. Any ideas on what could be causing this?

    Go on, have a guess
    Dictionary attack spam going to accounts with the Default Address set to anything other than :fail: could well be the cause.

    You can get a listing of domains Default Address using:

    grep *: /etc/valiases/*
