Help... /var/log/maillog entries
 
Hello everyone,
Can someone please let me know if this is some kind of security breach on my mail server:

Code:

There is only 1 user account (tom) which is me and I did not access my server during the above time in the logs. Can anyone let me know what the "Disconnected for inactivity" means even though I wasn't logged in at all.

Thanks.

It means tom was disconnected for being too idle.

Is your IP 174.252.113.117 (Verizon Wireless)?
