Hello Frawson,

This appears to be a compromised account sending out a lot of messages.
MagicSpam for Mailenable does not do spam checks on outgoing messages.

Please try to determine who the compromised user is change there
password, and get them to run a virus check on their pc. Also, you
could try to enforce a stronger password policy with MailEnable to
prevent this issue in the future.
