Exim problem

Hello all

I'm having a heck of a problem. My system supposedly does not allow
unauthorized relaying, yet Exim V4 is apparently sending out hundreds
and hundreds of messages (to persons-YDxpq3io04c at public.gmane.org).

- It would seem they are "from" apache-WYle8UNbkfMGClDRh0WFwpAGcjtitEbrAL8bYrjMMd8 at public.gmane.org
- Their source is P=local (not smtp) Somehow, these messages are
  originating from my system. (not relayed from somewhere else)

- Local user p911-alan is the first recipient. His message shows that
  there is one (and only one) additional "To" who is a non-existent
- /var/log/exim/main.log shows a heck of a lot of other people are being
  sent that same message

Does anyone have any suggestions?
I'd sure like to know how this guy is doing it...
