Problems with mailserver spamming itself due to loop



Hello,

I have a recurring problem with my mailserver redelivering the same email over and over again to itself, until it gets entirely
overloaded.

I am not sure what triggers this, it seems that mostly some incoming spam emails might be to blame. I guess there is an underlying
configuration problem that needs to be fixed so that these loops will not happen any more, but I don't know where to  look.

Attached below is an email header of one of those emails that shows how the message is looping:
	Received: from smtp2.mydomain.com (localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1])
	....
	Received: (from root localhost)

smtp2.mydomain.com and localhost is the machine...

Can somebody tell me what I can do to prevent these loops?

This is using sendmail 8.13.8-2, procmail 3.22-17.1, and cyrus-imapd 2.3.7-8.fc6 from Core 6.

Thanks,

MARK
