Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

With the relay setting that you describe noone outside of your organization can use your server as a relay for spam. I think what you see in the queues are NDRs (Non-Delivery reports caused by spam). We have a LOT of those and they're unfortunately not avoidable unless you switch off the NDRs (which is generally not a good idea). You might turn it off for a limited time (over night for instance) and see if the queues dissapear.
To set it up properly I'd recommend you to add your own internal network(s) in the Relay list to explicitly tell the server what network(s) are approved.
