It could be a corrupt SMTP Connector or upset Metabase.
Try deleting the connector (after writing down the settings), then re-creating a new connector and putting all the settings back.

Hi All ...What i have try my xperience is ...When I click on the Queues node in ESM, in the right-hand pane I see 5
listings which disturb me. They are listed immediately after "Failed
Message Retry Queue". How can I delete them? Prior to today, my Exchange
box was not doing reverse DNS lookups, but I changed that so now it is.
I'll put the whole list below. Note that I have two default SMTP Virtual
Servers, one internal and one external. My AntiVirus software detected a
lot of Netsky virus detections in my Badmail folder, which are .bad and .bad
files, all of which I just shift-deleted. I asked previously if Netsky
virus could have created these rogue Internet Mail SMTP Connectors. I found
out the answer to that - no, because I ran the Netsky removal tool and no
virus was found.
