Hi,

Odd one this - I've got a Cpanel box which is showing mail statistics for a domain that is external to the server.

On top of that the domain is an open proxy.

Top 50 sending hosts by message count
Messages Bytes Average Sending host
3566 6004KB 1724 local
1459 8229KB 5775 digitalcybersoft.com

Any idea how/why this is happening?

Regards,
Suhail.

So this domain isn't hosted on your server at all?

Is there an entry for this domain in your /etc/hosts file by chance?

That's correct, the domain isn't hosted on my server at all, and there is no entry for this domain in the /etc/hosts file.

So how can this be?
