I guess that you've been sending lots of spam

#1 STop your port 25 from allowing outbound connections
#2 Use this http://log.damnation.org.uk/ to try and work out which account has been compromised
#3 Clear the queue - this may a long time each attempt and may take many attempts - this may take hours
#4 change your passwords, especially the compromised account
#5 try and get your self off the blacklists

Yes you server is too busy sending spam to the world

CHeck your mail queue. It will be very full.

so from your logs, where is the mail originating that your hmailserver is sending?
it may be a trojan on the same computer, or LAN...

if you have configured hMailServer incorrectly
My hmailserver is up from more than 1 year, what could be the cause of such bad configuration?
