i'm having this really odd issue with spamd on my cpanel/whm server.
basically spamd is running two instances. the first is as root, which is normal, but the 2nd is as one of the accounts on my server- a standard shared account. i'd understand if it were only for a few seconds while a message was delivered- but this is 24 hours a day, it runs as that one user.
i know this one user does have email issues in that he receives a hell of a lot of spam and spamassassin needs to work a fair amount for it. however, it does not explain spamd running as this user non-stop!
