Check the EXCHSRVR\IMCData\Out\ folder.  I believe that is the location Exchange 5.5 stores it's outbound emails.

Stop the Internet Mail Connector service.
Move the messages to a temporary location out of that folder.
Start the Internet Mail Connector service.

That should clear up your outbound queue.

If you are looking for Inbound message, I believe it is in EXCHSRVR\IMCData\In.

I do not have an IMCdata folder anywhere on my server. I am using SBS 2000 with Exchange 2000

Oh.  Sorry.  The title and text of your question mentions Exchange 5.5 with sp3.
