Hi,
I am having trouble with spam being sent through my Exchange 2003 Sp2 server. It is not an open relay.
But 2 users accounts were sending mail out.

looks like you have a worm in your network.  Use a network stiffer to see who is passing the traffic .  The one that is sending information to your exchange server at the time set is probably your wormed computer.  Run AV/Spyware sweeps on it.
