Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

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.
