I have an exhcange 2000 server runing on Windows server 2000 standard. Both pathched with latest patches. I cleaned the SMTP queus and was down to the standard 4 or 5 queues. I unpluged my server from the network, waited 3 hours. When I came back to check, my queues were at 491. This tells me that I have a virus or a trojan on my server that is trying to send messages. I have norton for exchange installed, I also have ran housecall from Trend Micro. All say my server is clean. What I don't understand is if I have no virus, and I have no possiable connection for relay or spam how is my server creating email? Anyone that can help on this would be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance
