The following to the exim configuration to enable some extended logging that greatly improves the ease in tracking down on-server spammers:

In WHM > Exim Configuration Editor > Switch to Advanced Mode > in the first textbox add the following line and then Save:

log_selector = +arguments +subject

This tells exim to log the path on disk from where the email was executed and the subject of the email.

suexec, if enabled, will run CGI scripts as the owner of the script file, typically the cPanel account name.
phpsuexec, if enabled, will run PHP scripts in the same manner as CGI scripts.
