    Exim and Server Load

    hi all,

    it's serveral days now that i have really high server load caused by exim. (sometimes it goes over 15.00)
    Going to ckeck the exim stats i can see the following stats (this stats are for a few hours only)
    ===================================
    205MB local
    149MB mailnull
    -----------
    Top 50 host destinations by message count
    -----------------------------------------
    21024 415MB local
    -----------------------------------------
    Top 50 host destinations by volume
    ----------------------------------
    21024 415MB local
    ----------
    7172 27MB :blackhole:
    ====================================

    but there is nothing i can see the sender. About the "local" "mailnull" with user send this messages out? is there any way to trace the user? or are this messages sent by a cgi script? Is there a way to dosable the SMTP server (temporarly) without shutting dow exim. I just like to block the SMTP for a while so that users cannot send e-mails trhought there mai.domain.com but not the pop3.


    BTW: where are going e-mails listed as :blackhole: Will they be stored somwhere on the server or will they be deleted?



    Thanks a lot
