Identify Virus/Spam sender in exchange 2003

We have an exchange 2003 server in our organization.  Some users are on exchange connections, some are on pop connections.  I have noticed that the mail queue will fill up with spam.  Items like bank of america, ebay uk blah blah.  It happens a couple times a week.  When it happens I stop outbound mail.. delete the messages and check the server to see if its been hacked.  I suspect that one of my users have been infected with a virus but am having difficulty identifying who is submitting all of the emails to the exchange server.  If I look at the emails in the queue all I see is the spoofed from email address.  Any ideas how I can identify if these emails are coming from pop users, a hacked server or exchange users?
