In a nutshell: poisoned messages are messages that are potentially harmful for Exchange.

They got there because Exchange determined they could be harmfull or they did crash the Exchange server in any way.
Checking these queues is part of the Exchange Admin job ;-)

AFAIK not.
Exchange will not even tell you that there are messages in the queue, you have to monitor it by yourself.

Basically, Exchange will move message there if it has troubles processing it (server failure) and that might be for various reasons (bad agent,...)
