Can you please download Microsoft Exchange Server User Monitor (EXMON) from following link and check who is sending the SPAM mails ?

Here is link
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=9A49C22E-E0C7-4B7C-ACEF-729D48AF7BC9&displaylang=en

In my case one of the compuetr on the network was infected with virus OR spyware and this infected computer was sending too much spam e-mails to the server
After Research we have downloaded the EXMON on the server and we got the IP Address of the client Machine which was sending too many traffice to exchange server
We have simply removed this machine from network and suddendly Generating of Log Files on the server Reduced
then we have scan the computer and found some virus and spyware.
