Uknown addresses are forwarded from my Exchange Server

While I was scanning to see the options in my Exchange Server (v.5.0 SRVPACK2) since I am a newbie in MSExchange, I found out that in the Internet Mailing Service, under the tab of Queues, there were around 20 emails that nobody from my company send them. They come from a person with email ...@england.com, and they are trying to reach a domain that doesn't exist, so they build up in the queues. I deleted them all, and 10 min later one more arrived.

Is there a way of blocking incoming traffic (e.g. block all emails that the sender has @england.com at his email address) or outgoing traffic (e.g. all emails that are trying to be sent to skytoon.becon.xxx.com)?

And please don't advice me to upgrade to Exchange Server 5.5 or 2000. I don't have the money.

Thanks

By the way, I am using this server as POP3 only, so I can't stop using the Internet Mailing Service.

dinosaurus - I started with Exchange V5.5 so I do not know if this is the same in V5.0 but in V5.5 you can use Exchange Administrator and go to Configuration|Connections|Internet Mail Service|Connections tab|Message Filtering and enter  speceific domains or addresses whose incoing email should be rejected.  We used this during the I Love You thing.
