    You should probably contact your host's support and maybe ask them shut down the ports used for sending Those mails ;)

    Maybe better to do before they shut you down GL

    Check your IP logs for the offender (likely a spider) and ban the IP

    you probably have a script running too thats exploiting a contact form or something similar...

    do you have any type of feedback/email form on your site?

    did you install a nulled script or anything on your site?

    Ask your host which file is sending the emails. Take a backup of it. Delete it and change all of your passwords.

    sounds like you have some kind of social network site running

    possibly it could be that, however if users can upload files to your server you could be opening a huge can of worms for yourself
