BFBI method. Change the PWD and contact the fool that let his old PWD
GET 'compromised' to see what has to be done to avoid repeats.
Configuring a safe and sane MTA, OTOH, wants more time invested in
'RTFM', and there are few easy ways to distinguish between a legitimate
high-traffic user and a cautiously-programmed 'bot that only trickles
out its payload slowly.
At this point, your questions are too vague. And overly casual.

You can make that investment of time, or just use a tick-the-box
pre-packaged, even 'C-panel' implementation, such as ships with Debian
as an option.
Purpose of THAT route is that soemone who HAS done the reading will have
selected the less-risky settings as defaults and options, so for basic,
