Why do we have all of these strange smtp connectors in our queue?  I don't think we are set as an open relay could that be it?  We have exchange server 2003.  Here's an example of one of many in the queue:

Name - SmallBusiness SMTP connector - (SMTP Connector)
Protocol - SMTP
Source - Default SMTP Virtual Server
State - Retry
Number of messages - 3
Total Message size (KB) - 9
Time oldest message submitted - 2/14/2006 9:59 PM
Time next connection retry - 2/15/2006 2:26 PM
System - No

If I double click the said smtp connector above and then click find now to find all the messages it says the sender is the postmaster and that the subject is hidden.  Please help.  I don't want are queue filled up and having it cause delays in sending email.
