Unrecognised email domains in the message queue.

Hi All,

A client of ours has 2 Exchange servers, one in each office. After resolving a problem for them within exchange I noticed the message queues for both servers have a number of strange entries which all have a status of "The remote server did not respond to a connection attempt"
Strangely after speaking to the client, they have not been trying to send email to any of these domains, and i'm afraid that somehow the server, or a client has a virus of some sort.

Upon opening the messages in the message queue, the sender is postmaster@..emaildomain.com

Below is a list of the domains.
Office 1:
com
dealsniffer.com
e-zone-defense.biz
centraltexasaviatio
net
0733.com
hideakifan.com
e-standard.com
canwetalk.com

Office 2:
om
ohio-state.com
allbritecarcareprod
m
pistonheads.biz
funeasy.biz
arabia.com
VIX.com
paramed.biz
gateway.net
we-help-u.biz
hideakifan.com
white-star.com
supergewinne.de

Thanks, that has worked mostly - But I still have a bunch of SMTP connectors in the mail queue, without any mail inside them which I cannot seem to get rid of?

If they show as message count "0" then you don't need to worry about it. They would be removed automatically. If you want to remove them immediately then you can restart the SMTP service
