problem with exim


I have a Cpanel server with 20 users.

when I execute

tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog

I can see a lot of these lines

unexpected disconnection while reading SMTP command from

I have millions of these lines on my exim_mainlog

Apparently email works fine on my server no problem,
but I am worried about these error lines.
What does it means ?
If they are not a worry , may I remove from logging them ?

What comes after the from. Is it an IP? Is it always the same IP?

It may be a spambot bailing out when it realizes it cannot use your server to relay...
