Mailroot\vsi 1\Queue\NTFS_*.EML files automatically generated

I am having issues with the folder Mailroot\vsi 1\Queue\NTFS_*.EML being overrun by the NTFS_*.eml files. They are being automatically generated from somewhere at a rate of about 1 every 2 secs.

What do these files mean, and where could they be coming from?

I am running ESET Nod32 Mail Security 4, and Lightspeed TTC Messaging Journal (these are the only pieces of software that I can think of that might affect individual emails.)

Hello,

That folder is your mail queue and what you are seeing is normal unless the volume is higher than normal and/or the queue grows indefinately. You can monitor your queues in ESM.

We have been offline for 4 days now. We can receive emails, send emails (at a severe performance decrease,) but we cannot read any of the emails in the inbox. These files continue to increase in volume even when I have disabled the SMTP service, and all exchange services.
Open one of the EML files and see if it appears to be spam.

These .eml files have no size, and no content. They are blank messages.

Turns out, ESETNOD32 Mail Security 4 was causing an issue with the main system.
