    Anybody have an answer for this? We have a spammer on our system and we are unable to trace this POS. The user is showing up as Mailnull which makes me think it's a bulk email script of some sort probably renamed to something not so obvious.

    Short of checking every file on the server, anyone have any ideas? Checked every log file I could think of and found nothing.
