I have some issues here and wonder if someone knows of a way to hunt for php sending scripts of any kind and send a daily report or emergency reports if a script is identified that send a large amount of main in 30 Min or 1 hour.

I use Postfix as mail client and look to monitor it for abuse.

Best wishes,
