Default ISPConfig Flooding System with E-Mails

I'm getting emails every second on the local machine to admispconfig@localhost.localdomain. I realize ispconfig uses this to send mail traffic statistics to itself. The problem is.. I don't have ispconfig.

I uninstalled ispconfig over a month ago .. there are no cron jobs no admispconfig user... and there is no /home/admispconfig anymore.

In fact, the emails were continuing to be sent despite there being no admispconfig user, and since 5-6 were being sent every second, each one would create a failure notice, causing a cascade of errors that have flooded my logs and taken up significant resources on our server for weeks now.

Please let me know how to stop this automated process, if you cannot do that... can you tell me how this automated process works because it apparently does not use cron.
