    Greetings, happykev !

    What email client are you using?  Outlook 2003? Exchange?  Using SBS?

    1. You might want to check where the pending emails are going and if the destination addresses are valid. There might be a mail relay problem. There are many sites that check whether your server is a mail relay server. SBS by default turns relay off to external and non-authenticated users.

    2. See if this thread in a forum will solve your problem

    Best wishes!

    could be missing a PTR record in DNS...Make sure your not setup to relay mail for senders outside your domain
