    So very suddenly my server started sending out about 30,000 emails a day through class-phpmailer.php

    They are all addressed to ‘whoever@whatever.com’ and for the life of me I can’t find what’s causing it.

    I have the latest version of WP and the latest version of all the plugins. I tried disabling all the plugins but the emails continue to be sent.

    Renaming class-phpmailer.php of course stopped the emails but also stopped the site from loading.

    I don’t really have a clue where to start looking here so any help appreciated!
