What is the best way to troubleshoot my Exchange 2003 server that is sending out a TON of bogus emails?  I have enabled message tracking and it looks like something is having a great time. :(  Any help to troubleshoot and narrow this down would be great.  I have run an AV scan on the server and came back clean.

Awesome!  I think I am on the right track.  I have added the sender and recipient filtering and enabled the filter on the virtual SMTP server.  My event log is still recording alot of stuff outlined below.  I disabled the account I found in event viewer that was authenticating and sending email.  Any other tips on the info below would be awesome!
