    Finally getting somewhere. Thanks guys. So far it appears it is the birthday emails so I am going to look into turning that off!

    Birthdays would be the first thing I'd look at as mentioned above.
    Subscriptions - the OP says they are not subscribed to anything but I'd check that.

    Also if the users have zero posts and haven't logged in for years, consider deleting them. That'd stop it!

    I am basically dumbfounded because I have not sent out any bulk emails to users and I can't think of any type of emails such users would be sent by vBulletin.

    Any ideas or things I am not thinking of?
    Those users could subscribe to threads,so your forum is sending out emails to them.
    Birthday greetings could be another reason.
