    Sorry for bad question, poor english, sorry,
    I have somebody login mailbox and start to spam.
    I would like to find out from where the user logged in the mailbox to find his IP and proof that they logged in with a valid password.

    Which log files(s) do I need to look in for this information.
    sadly I don't know exact time when the spam started.
