they are listed there because they are the current sessions your exchange server has at that moment. (a session is a connection to an email outside).

So when I see chefsessel-eruopa.com in the "Current Sessions" the Exchange Server is either receiving from that domain or sending to it?

that usually is correct. But could also because of some other activity, like relay, or anti-spam software.

Outbound (sending). Generally there are 9 queues listed + any additional mailbox stores or exchange connecting servers. So, if you have 1 exchange server and 1 mail store, you would have 9 listed queues plus whatever additional is being sent out.
