I have been using NT4 and the option pack for years. I am running
SMTP server and recently my log files are getting jammed with entries
like this:
22:08:18 10.10.101.6 QUIT - 0

I am getting about 80 of these entries per second. It eats up disk
space fairly quickly - about 150 megs per day.

The IP address is of my router.

The misbehaving SMTP server is configured as a smart host for another
computer on my network, while its smart host is a computer outside of
my network. I tried removing the smart host but this is still
happening.

Does anybody know why this may be happening and what can be done to
fix it??

It seems that all mail is being delivered properly so I am at a loss
as to why this is happening and how to fix it.

Please help!

Thanks in advance,

D

Have you tried?
1. Rebooting the router...
2. Rebooting the server...
3. Running a packet sniffer, check the MAC address of the
packet and make sure it's really coming from the router...
