I got an alert to my email with title and content like this

New Message: Warning: 200 E-Mails have just been sent by [email protected]

A new message or response with subject:

Warning: 200 E-Mails have just been sent by [email protected]

has arrived for you to view.
I don't know which source sent out these email. Can I know the way to check content of these emails and where they were sent out?

Thanks!

To determine the origin of the email message, use the extended email headers to locate the IP address of the sender's mail server. Keep in mind that the header is always in the reverse when read from top to bottom. The first mail server listed is the last one the mail went through on its way to you. The further down you read the further you back track where the message has came from.

Do you use any control panel?

Usually these alerts could be sent by any email monitoring system/out going filter rules on firewall or any Anti spam softwares installed on your server.

You need to have a detailed check on the email logs for any information the emails sent from your email account and analyse the email header for subject, content etc.

If you are not familiar with the subject content etc then there might have chances that your email account password is compromised.
Reset the password and check the you are still getting the alerts.

This is a message from the DirectAdmin control panel. When you logged into DirectAdmin and checked the message in the Message System what did it say?

If you haven't sent these emails, then it's most likely that a website on the server has a vulnerability that allows attackers to send mail through a PHP script. These will probably not show up in exim log, as they don't use SMTP, but mail() function. I can't give more information unless I take a look at the server. If you want me to, please PM me.
