Unfortunately there's nothing you can do to clean a spoofed address.

What can be done on the destination servers is to activate the "Sender Address Verification". At that point,  the server will accept messages only after verifying with DNS the MX records of the sender domain and matching the info written in the mail header.
But this will only stop SPAM attacks before reaching to exchange, therefore, the NDRs are no longer generated.

Thanks for that.

I will look into that. But the more pressing issue is all emails are now Queued in 'messages waiting to be routed' and take ages to be delivered.

Any ideas?
