    I'm not an expert, but if you are sure there is not an open relay, I'd check any web sites you are hosting (particularly forums and blogs, contact me forms, email this page to a friend, etc.) to ensure that they aren't vulnerable to header injections and other nastiness. If you suspect a site, you might check your web logs also to see if any of the latest vulnerability probes have been successful.
