Exchange Queues - Default SMTP Virtual Server creating SmallBusiness SMTP connector on the fly
Posted on 2008-09-29
I've read some great info on NDR Attacks and SPF, and am following through by taking measures to close the door on spammers. However, there's something unusual happening to the Exchange Server Queue. Weird Default queues are appearing in the Exchange Server Queues view. I'm not sure what's causing them or how to delete them. My options are to right-click on the "Name", where the popup menu list is "Find messages..."; "Unfreeze", "Freeze", "Force Connection". I "Freeze" the newly created queue as soon as it appears, but how do I get rid of it? Better yet, how do I prevent it? Some of them are holding messages. So far today, 74 new Default queues have been created and I want to get rid of them.
