HELP! My mail server is relaying for a spammer big time....

We administer Sendmail for a number of ISPs.  You need to give me some
more information.  What platform are you using?  If this is Linux, what
distribution?  Can you send me a copy of your file, too?  
Where is the access_db?  Above all, which version of Sendmail are you
using?  Is it from the vendor, or did you build it yourself?  Send me the
output of issuing:

	sendmail -d0.10 < /dev/null
