    Below is a sample of my server logs. The message count below is a truncated list showing only users with large volumes. This list is about 12 hours old, showing a large volume in that 12 hours.

    ---> I am wondering why "local" is sending out so much email. I thought that was disabled in Cpanel?

    ---> I am also wondering why I have two IP numbers listed as sending emails. Those are IPs on my server, but I thought that Cpanel prevented this!?

    ---> Can someone explain how "hotmail.com" is listed as sending email via my server? Certainly, Cpanel is not allowing open relay!?


    Note,
    * I am running PHPSUEXEC as well as SUEXEC.
    *In tweak settings, I have disallowed "nobody" from sending emails.
    * All instances of FormMail.pl/.cgi have been removed, including redirects established on the cgi-sys/formmail.pl scripts that redirect to a notice page when anyone trys to use cgi-sys/formmail.pl

    The previous thread by Mr Nobody, forgot his name as his message was deleted from the forums but he talks about the IMAP HOLE that i also discovered 2 weeks back where HOTMAIL and a bunch of other sites, not hosted on my server, were supposedly sending out mail from my box. Go figure. Upgrade to Exim 350. Dont know if this fixes it but its worth a try. Anything is worth a try at the moment.

    Hmm, no replies. Maybe everyone else is as clueless about this feature as I am. :confused:
