    I am running ispconfig on wheezy and from yesterday I have abuse reports from the server saying I am spaming out

    I already have added

    smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination
    smtpd_sender_restrictions = reject_unknown_sender_domain

    To my postfix main.fc and reloaded it but no effect

    I wonder if you can save me from getting taken away.
    I still see Mail Queue 60 messages in my webmin even when my postfix server is not running .. I do not know what to do

    the original setup created by ispconfig was fine. better change it back.

    To your original problem:

    The most likely reason is a hacked website or someone was able to get a smtp password. check one of the mails in the mailqueue with postcat command, you will see in the mail headers of the script was sent by smtp auth (hacked account) or php (hacked website).
