Delivery Type

    This value is determined by the next hop selection. The next hop selection identifies where messages are queued for delivery. The delivery type can be one of the following values:

        * DNSConnectorDelivery   The messages are queued for delivery to an external recipient by using a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) connector that is located on the local server and that is configured to use Domain Name System (DNS) for routing resolution.




These are not connectors - but are emails waiting to be delivered waiting in the queue.

you need to setup RDNS for sure! maybe the queued mail is backscatter from mailservers bouching any spoofed mail by another mailserver which in turn is coming back to your mailserver.
any how i would suggest you sort the rdns asap.
in a nut shell you need to contact your DNS provider and tell them you want to create a RDNS record for the a record of your mailserver.
e.g. lets say we have a exchange server with IP address 195.1.1.1 and the a record which points to this in the mx records is mail.domain.com
you need to create a RDNS record which resolves 195.1.1.1 to mail.domain.com.
you also need to change the FQDN on the receive connector to the A record mail.domain.com.
please can you provide screen shots of your receive connector using port 25, all 4 tabs please
thanks, mike
