Maybe some qualification is needed here.
If your mail jail gets broken into, then it will still be used as a spambot.
But your host (the machine in which your jails run in) wouldn't have been
compromised, necessarily, by the fact that the jail got compromised. Having
root on a jail (if that's what we are talking about by 'compromised' )
shouldn't affect your host machine. Unless there is some other vulnerability
that can be used, of course.
