    Restart postfix, dovote or courier-authdaemon and saslauthd. If there is a very high sending pressure, then it can happen that postfix uses cached auth details so a restart is nescessary to make it aware that the account details have been changed.

    If this dont help, then take a look into some of the spam mails in the mailqueue with postcat command to see which exact user had sent them or if they were send with a php srcipt by a website.

    I only restarted postfix and courier* process.
    I restart the saslauthd and it seems to solve the problem.
    Anyway I ended up rebooting the system.
    Thanks a lot!
