[Not Solved] need help ASAP
hi guys !
i think my server is sending spam, a couple of day ago was receiving lots of bounced emails, so i checked the queue an it was very big. Cleared the queue and its now empty almost all the time.
Now i´m checking the mail logs and still are lots of rare lines like this :

There definitely appears to be log in attempts, but this very small snapshot of the log doesn't really show everything that you have described, so it's difficult to diagnose.

Perhaps you could install Fail2Ban and enable the Postfix protection, and see if that helps stop the log in attempts.

Fail2Ban should already be on your server Rodrigo. I also get the same logs. It is spam servers trying to find holes in your server to send spam. If you notice they are warnings. They should also be being blocked from multiple attacks from one of the routines I installed on your server. You should be OK.
I'll take a look tonight.
