Process called " system:8 " is listening on all kinds of ports on GFI Mail Essentials for Exchange box on my DMZ. What is this process?

I need to know what this process is. Found it after running Sysinternals TCPView.
1) Recently had a virus storm on the network which has been handled now.
2) Queue folder on the GFI Mail Essentials for Exchange box is overflowing with items. Averaging about 20,000 items at any given time on a 200 computer network. Seems like the items are being created about 1-5 every minute. Having to stop and start the SMTP service once in a while or mail seems to stop or come back undeliverable.
3) I think this machine (or another) may have a mass mailer of some kind, but Norton Corporate Edition is not detecting anything on the network machines.
Is the process "system:8" related to the overflowing queue folder?
JUST A HEADS UP: I didn't install the Mail Essentials or the Exchange and I am no expert on either of them.
