Please have a read of my article and check if you have mail building up in your queues:'t-send.html

If not, then you are probably suffering from NDR spam and that means implementing some good Anti-Spam software, of which you can trial some great software such as Vamsoft ORF Fusion ( and that should help eliminate the problem for you.

Have you looked in your outbound queue on the server?  If not - please do and check if anything is sitting there waiting to go out and reference my article for what to do depending on what's in the queue and who the senders are.

hi alan
Have you looked in your outbound queue on the server? where can i see that?
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
To open Queue Viewer, follow these steps:

Click Start, go to Programs, Microsoft Exchange, and then select System Manager.
Expand the Servers container. The Servers container may be located under the Administrative Groups container, depending on the options that are enabled on your server.
Expand the server that contains the queues that you want to view.
Click Queues to start Queue Viewer.

apollo-13Author Commented:
but if i click no info
Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
If you double-click the messages in the queue, can't you see who the sender is?
apollo-13Author Commented:
no i cant see
Go to the person's outlook and open the NDR and then view header information.  Should give you the sending email server address.  Most likely if your exchange is properly configured then the users email has been spoofed.  You could also check this by configuring your server not to generate NDR's and see if they are still showing up
