internet mail smtp connector queues

When I click on the Queues node in ESM, in the right-hand pane I see tens of
listings which read: "Internet Mail (SMTP) Connector (<server_name>) - <some strange websites> (SMTP Connector)"
The in the Message Tracking Center I see hundreds of Delivery Status Notification (Failure) messages.
So I assume that this is spam: all those websites are trying to send me messages that are not delivered, so my postmaster is notifying them of NDR.
How can I stop them from even hitting my server?

If it is all postmaster@ then it is NDR spam, which will be cleared by using he link above to my web site.
If you want to clear the queues, then see my spam cleanup article: http://www.amset.info/exchange/spam-cleanup.asp
