i have a very mysterious spamming issue going on that i am clueless what to do about. i have my sendmail automatically set to BCC everything that comes off my server so i can monitor all outgoing email.
below is an example with full headers of what i am seeing.
here is what i altered for this posting:
MY-ADDRESS-AT-gmail.com - my gmail address used to monitor outgoing MY-DOMAIN-NAME-DOT-COM - my home server domain name MY-OTHER-DOMAIN-NAME-DOT-COM - my application domain name MY-SERVER-IP-NUMBER - my server IP number VICTIM - people who somehow became involved with this outgoing email.

i am running clamAV, but dont see anything there. i thought that sendmail always included the calling program name, but we are not seeing which program is sending the email.
my hosting company said they dont see any proof this came from my server, but since i am seeing an IP number i want to be absolutely sure.
all outgoing email is supposed to be going through sendmail.
i did cross-check an email address and found this in the /var/log/maillog:
Dec 16 12:43:28 edwardsmarkf postfix/smtp: 59CE611D8F8: to=<tompaulrocVICTIMyahoo.co.uk>, relay=mx-eu.mail.am0.yahoodns.net[126.96.36.199]:25, delay=12, delays=9.1/0/0.37/2.7, dsn=4.0.0, status=deferred (host mx-eu.mail.am0.yahoodns.net[188.8.131.52] said: 451 mta1013.mail.ir2.yahoo.com Resources temporarily unavailable. Please try again later [#4.16.1]. (in reply to end of DATA command))
and i found this in mailq:

as always, any help is appreciated.
