    Reply To: Lots of requests for the POST /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=send-email, by James Huff

    Based on the query string, it sounds like they are attempting (unsuccessfully due to the 503) to send email from your server by way of WordPress, or to put that another way, hijack your site to send email spam.

    This was actually addressed in WordPress 4.7.1 https://wordpress.org/news/2017/01/wordpress-4-7-1-security-and-maintenance-release/ but that of course doesn’t stop bots from trying.

    Have you tried the plugin mentioned earlier?
