Yeah that's what's bothering me. Some of the results in mailq seem to tell
me that spams are being being delayed in the outgoing mail and that these mails
are originating from the MAIL-DAMEAN or some such. I believe that they are coming from
the info-at-nylxs.com alias, but I'm not certain and the mail logs are not clearifying this.
Also, majordomo returns spam messages to the user-at-domain where a request is suposedly
generated from, and that might also be the origin.
Neither would concern me, but an exploit for relaying would make me really worry.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attacted at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt. I guess you missed that one."
