    Hi All,

    We're having a bit of a problem with an ISPConfig installation. For the past 12 hour or so, it has been bogging down because of a mass amount of emails being sent to the admispconfig user have the subject of "Mailsize: <username>" but what appears to be just a PID or a 4-digit size in the body of the email. Something like this:

    [email protected]
    ${daemon_flags}c u
    [email protected]
    C:[email protected]
    rRFC822; [email protected]
    RPFD:[email protected]
    H?P?Return-Path: <�g>
    H??Received: (from [email protected])
    	by (8.13.8/8.13.8/Submit) id m6ALpe25030902
    	for [email protected]; Thu, 10 Jul 2008 17:51:40 -0400
    H?D?Date: Thu, 10 Jul 2008 17:51:40 -0400
    H?F?From: colleen <perc_colleen>
    H?x?Full-Name: colleen
    H?M?Message-Id: <[email protected]>
    H??X-Loop: [email protected]
    H??Subject: Mailsize: perc_colleen
    And the associated message body file will contain just something like this:
    We're having trouble finding out what is generating these messages, but they're being generated fast and furious. We've upgraded ISPConfig to the current 2.2.24 and are running it on CentOS 5.2 (Final).

    We need to shut these messages off in order to keep the server from crashing under the load of processing them. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find out where these messages are coming from?

    There is a bug in your mail configuration, the admispconfig messages are ok and muts be there, but your mail system seems not be able to delievr them. Please post a excerpt of the mail log.
