    All of a sudden, I'm getting 50-100 emails daily that look like this:

    Hi, info, my name is Daria and i'm from Russia. Currently I live in US. Im so glad to see your profile on Facebook. You seem like my type and I would like us to know each other better. You are super cute and handsome. If you feel the same, email me [email protected] and I will send some of my photos. Hugs, Daria

    According to below, I think my server isn't sending the emails. Each email has similar, subject, message, email received by are from different domains & different IPs. Any one has any suggestions how to block this SPAM?

    Googling X-PHP-Originating-Script: 971:class-phpmailer.php
    returned this result from January 2014, is this still valid today?

    Just edit /etc/php5/cgi/php.ini and change the following to:
    mail.add_x_header = Off
    While your in there change:
    expose_php = Off

    Filter: Body Filter

    Thanks Florian! I am using NORMAL Spamfilter policy, if I change SPAM kill level from 50.00 to 49.00 would that stop delivery of SPAM to JUNK folder and kill the message before it reaches user's mailbox?

    You will have to set Kill level to e.g. 12 to get the above mentioned mail deleted.
