SQL Server Error: 4060 for deleted database Error: 18456 Login failed for user

SQL Server 2005 Management/SQL Server Logs are writing errors every minute for a database that has been deleted.  Messages are:
[298] SQLServer Error: 4060, Cannot open database "DatabaseName" requested by the login. The login failed. [SQLSTATE 42000].
[298] SQLServer Error: 18456, Login failed for user 'domain\username'.. [SQLSTATE 28000].

How do I  inform SQL that the subject databases are gone and there's no need to clutter the logs?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would suggest locating the application that is constantly trying to connect and make it stop.  That is going to be your best solution.

BIngo. Thanks.  We had a test MOSS2007 deployment that was decommisioned, and we didn't realize that the MOSS SSP instantiated a "...DeleteExpiredSessions" job on SQL.

Deleting the appropriate job under SQL Server Agent/Jobs  did the trick.
