We have a small business server running exchange 2003. My IP address is keep getting blacklisted. When I research, I come to find out that something in my network is sending out spam but I can't seem to figure out which machine is infected. I have ran several scans on all the machines but nothing seems to help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like your systems are setup for open relay. Be sure it is configured to send emails for your domain only. Check the blacklists you are on and see if it is just the IP address range of your ISP or if it is isolated to just your server. Work with the blacklist owner to get your organization unlisted. Also ask the organizations you correspond with frequently to add your company to their permitted senders list.

You can also review the smtp logs on the mail server to find the rogue sending machine. That is how we found one recently in our organization.
