Miranda Instant Messenger sending obscene emails?

My brother has Miranda on his computer so he can Chat with all his friends on the different networks - MSN, Yahoo, AIM, Jabber, ICQ.

He mostly chats to MSN users.

We have just received a phone call from the parents of some of his friends saying he has been sending them obscene emails.

He hasn't sent them anything from his email program so it must be coming from his Instant Chat program Miranda. But he says he didn't send them.

Is there any way of finding out what's going on here? We can't find a history of anything which Miranda has sent - Is there a log file somewhere we can look at?

Or do we have spyware on the computer? He does tend to have his Miranda window ON throughout his internet browsing sessions so could something nasty be getting past our firewall and sending the messages from his IM account?

How can we stop these mysterious obscene messages from being sent? If he Exits Miranda he cannot receive IM messages from his friends as it doesn't seem to do Email notification for incoming messages.
