How to view headers for messages in queue

I'm running MS Exchange 2003. I have a message that was stuck in one of the outgoing queues that I have frozen. The message appears to be some sort of spam. The sender is not one of my users/email addresses and it's not from my domain. I want to view the header or find some other way of tracking where it originated from. My server should not be doing relays so I'm puzzled as to how it got there.  How can I view the header or get other detailed tracking info for this message?

I got the answer I was looking for from another source. The messages in the outgoing queue can usually be found on the hard drive in \Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\Queue You can open the .eml file with something like Outlook Express etc and view the header from there.
