Re: Am my iRedMail server being hack?

But I don't know all the To address in my mail queue.....and I can send and receive mail from my hotmail account...

Re: Am my iRedMail server being hack?

Can you confirm whether your user sent mails to them or not?

Re: Am my iRedMail server being hack?

100% confirm cause no one is using the www account.....

PS: This is my first time running a mail server so you can consider me a newbie....not very sure about security...

Re: Am my iRedMail server being hack?

Password of this account was cracked?

8

Re: Am my iRedMail server being hack?

It could be...cause I am using a simple password....is there a way of finding the root cause?

9

Re: Am my iRedMail server being hack?

Change its password first, if no more spam emails, that's the root cause.

10

Re: Am my iRedMail server being hack?

Done....will let u all know the result.
BTW, I am not using DKIM and SPF. Could that be one of the root cause?

Re: Am my iRedMail server being hack?

Read the introduction of DKIM/SPF first, and you will know what they used for.
