We are running Exchange 2003 with SP2. In our OWA Front End server, there are over 3,000 emails. They are sent from postmaster@chicagotech.net. We don’t have this mailbox. So I deleted them manually. Why do we have these mails in the queue and how can we delete them automatically?

Deleting postmaster@ will not help. You may as well put that mailbox back.

That is NDR spam.

You need my spam cleanup article.
http://www.amset.info/exchange/spam-cleanup.asp

That will show you how to deal with the issue then clean up the queues.

Hi Simon,

Thank you for the help.  I am in Step 3: Clean up the Exchange Server queues. Where is the Server Management tool?

Its always the same tool - Exchange System Manager. It will be in the Exchange Server program group.
