I have over 400 messages in my shadow queue on my netx hop domain server:

How come there are so many in there?  A few days ago there were 840 and I see they are going down.

I know it has to wait for confirmation from next hop then deliver.
Any ideas?

It is a new feature in Exchange 2010.

If the next hop is exchange 2010 then it maintains a queue to the next exchange 2010 server. Once it sends a message to next hop it will hold the message in this queue. If the next hops confirms the message was received it will remove it from its queue.
