In addition to what others wrote, 
in cases spam is not direct from your host, 
but perhaps relaying (now or later) via your host, check with this:

echo /usr/local/*bin/*sasl*
		If there is no sasl installed, dont worry thats
		fine, dont install it just to check, just exit, else :-)

man sasldblistusers
				# you might have sasl2 instead of sasl
				# If your rogue user is in list
man  saslpasswd
