Hi Frank, All
Thanks Frank for your quick response
I do some diagnoses into my mail server, I executed these commands "
1- sudo ~/libexec/zmqstat
2- /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postqueue -p
the all output is just like
06ECE1382A8A 1524 Mon May 16 20:06:47 ahmed at xx.yy.ss
(connect to wyomingnews.com.bak-mx.smtprou...[188.8.131.52]:25: Connection timed out)
bmartin at wyomingnews.com

3- /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/postcat -qv 06ECE1382A8A " which is "06ECE1382A8A " is the mesg id of "ahmed at xx.yy.ss" and I note that the x- originated-IP ip is out of my network, so it seem that some one try to send spam through this email "ahmed at xx.yy.xx".
After that I put the strange IP in our FW to block it, now how can I prevent this behavior to happen again?? And am I in the right way ??
I appreciate your help

I believe you should try to find out how the spam got into your server.
Was someone logged in and generated it on the server?
Were the emails generated from a web-script that generates emails, and
was run by remote users?
Or were the emails submitted into your MTA through SMTP on ports 25 or
587 (or 465) ?
using compromised credentials of one of your users?
I think going through the zimbra logs is the best way forward.
At my work we have clients of internet connectivity and they run their
own Zimbra server, and some of them also have spamming problems.
Does anyone know the locations of all the relevant log files (MTA,
email) on Zimbra? Because our clients need our help directing them there...
