I notice that there are som spam messages in my queue that have no sending address and some that do have a sending address but subject is spam.  They dont leave the queue and are supposed to be going outbound.  What do i do with them besides delete them?  Thanks

Download and run, then enter this:  
   
delmsg flags=all  

This is a pretty good tool to use if you have an exchange server...It deletes all the messages in the queue however. Run it from the exchange server. It's a good tool if you just want to empty the queue.

Yeah it will wipe out all the messages....but if you have 10,000+ NDR or spam messages in the queue and don't want to pick through them...then use the tool. :)

It is unlikely that they are coming from the inside - inside viruses will use their own SMTP engine, not Exchange.

Enable message tracking, and run through the first link posted.
