SMTP Queue filled with wanna be senders

Whenever I go into the SMTP Virtual Server Queue on my 
exchange server I notice their are several e-mails waiting 
to be routed out from several domain names like Enter7 or 
funfortonight sending from "Postmaster".  They always sit 
in the Queued status but never get delivered. Obviously 
they are spammers trying to relay but they can't. Over a 
weekend I notice somtimes 20 or 30 sit in the Queue.  I 
have configured the options that Micorosoft has suggested 
to not allow relaying. Is thier any way to prevent these 
Spammers from hanging in my Queue without interrupting my 
companies regular e-mail. I hate haven't to go in and 
clean it out.

Thanks, Ed

Those are most likely NDRs (non delivery receipts) because the bogus sender
sent an email to a guessed email address in your domain.  Since the sender
is bogus (Enter7), it sits in your queue.

Delete 'em all.

Is there a way to quickly delete all the Queues.  Rignt now I have to
highlight each queue one at a time.  Then I do a find messages dialog.  Then
I clisck on the find button.  Then I highlight the messages and click
delete(no NDR) the I select yes at the prompt.  Repeat for every Queue.

Is there anyway to just delete all the bad Queues at once?  Or is there some
type of utility available>   BTW I am using Exchange 2003.

Thanks

Nick,

That's what I do now is delete them I wanted to know since 
they seem to be always addressed to send from "Postmaster" 
is their a way to block thme before they getin the Queue?
Is their a way to only allow postmaster to send 
internally. And where is this postmaster account? and can 
it be renamed?

The only way I can think of to eliminate this problem is with a content
filter on the way IN that checks the senders domain.  That way, it never
gets in to be NDR'd.

When I send out mail to multiple external recipients, and then I go to the message tracking center in 2003, I can see that the email is being transfered from 2003 SMTP to 5.5 MTA for delivery.

outgoing failure and non-delivery messages from SMTP server..
Hi there, I have one machine that I use sparingly as a mass email server. Of the thousand or so emails that go out from that machine once a month, a couple of hundred of them are bound to be wrong or changed email addresses. The SMTP server sends out "Delivery Status Notification (Delay)" and "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)" messages, soon after the intial sending of the mass emails. However, when I turn off the SMTP server, or keep the machine off for a few days, then I don't get any of those failure/non-delivery messages. But as soon as I turn on the mach...
