If the queue get too big will users sending in receive a 452 or is it 451 error stating that the remote server does not have enough storage, or something like that?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Can you delete a specific queue from exchange?  Or when you freeze it, will it stay frozen permanently?

rakeshmiglaniCommented:
yes can delete the message from the queue. once the queue is empty it goes away after some time
once you freeze a queue it stays frozen till the time you restart the smtp service or the smtp virtual server.

Why would a queue that only has spam in it continue to get more email in it after deleteing it all when that queue is frozen?

Do you have a problem with spam being sent via your server?
Exchange will take whatever you throw at it. It may struggle to display everything, but it will take it. I regularly stress test Exchange servers with 10,000+ messages.

If you have a problem with spam then you should investigate the source.
Take a look at my spam clean up article. http://www.amset.info/exchange/spam-cleanup.asp

We have ralying turned on right now, we have a application that needs it to run properly.  Do you have any thoughts on how to secure that properly, so only inside networks pc's are able to relay?

don't open it for everybody. just grant relaying permissions to the ip address of that application server.
