I Need someone to tell me a quick method of deleting all messages in the outbound queues in Microsoft exchange

I have remote access to an sbs2003 server
two users have compiled an email 'mailing list' of 500 names and have attached a pdf of 1.5mb
I want to kill off/prevent the delivery of these messages.
They stated the sending process yesterday but it is still continuing to send I suspect there is some sort of looping process going on.
I have tried manually deleting the messages from the queues but they continue to refill minutes later
This process is choking the bandwidth and limiting my connectivity to the server

Check the queues from Exchange System Manager - Server - Queues.

Right Click on the queue which has the email getting delivered to internet & select Find Messages - Find all the messages & select Delete(no NDR).

this is what we are doing but there are 129 queues and as quickly as we delete the messages more new queues are forming

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

There is no option to stop Exchange server from creatig queues.

But if Exchange 2003 SP2 is insalled; block the receiver's domain in receipient Filteriing (from Global Settings - Message Delivery - Properties).

Also you need to select Receipient Filteriing from that server's SMTP Virtual server's property - Geberal - Advanced - Edit - Select "Apply Receipient Filter".

Click on OK - OK - OK. Restart SMTP & Routing Engine Service.

All the best!!!
