    whm, mail queue manager question

    hi guys,

    i'm trying to catch any unsecured form processors on my server, and seeing what accounts are sending email which shouldn't be.

    in mail queue manager, looking at the details of an email, i get confused as to where the email is going, is this email outgoing?

    mailnull 47 12
    1161777698 0
    -ident mailnull
    -received_protocol local
    -body_linecount 45
    -frozen 1161777698
    [email protected]

    The message was sent from "[email protected]" to "[email protected]" and that failed, so Exim tried to return to sender but it failed for whatever reason, so now it's stuck in the mail queue.

    If you scroll down further you should see something like:

    [email protected]
    No Such User Here

    Assuming that's why it failed...
