You have reached your daily smtp relay limit


Hi,

I have fedora 9 installed on my server, i keep receiving this message every few days "YOU HAVE REACHED YOUR DAILY SMTP RELAY LIMIT", we have few sites running on our web server, i believe someone is using our contact forms for spam? i need to check which site was used for this attack, however i was not able to find which log file i need to open to find the emails that were sent?

is there a way that i can find which website is causing this?

any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Do you know who establishes the Limit?
Do you know what the Limit is?
Do you know how much legitimate smtp traffic is being generated by your site?

/var/log/messages should contain any sent messages. You may also want to look through the configuration to see if it logs information somewhere else. What mail system are you using?
