Hi, folks. I have a Pix 501 firewall and a exchangeserver 5.5 MX records for the exchangeserver is at my isp.

Everything has been working working perfectly for weeks now, but this morning i when i got to work the applicationlog iss full
off exchange messages, and they all seem to be about SMTP looking at the messages it seems to be clear that other people are using  my exchangeserver to send messages, and it has been to much for the server.

The exchangeserver has stopped working  now, what to do?  
And how do i avoid this problem in the future ,is there anything i can do on the pix ?

Thanks in advance
