Why is it that the smtp que is loaded with smtp connectors that I know are not being used by the users on our network. I see stuff like "monthlychecks.biz" and "hotbabes.ru". I purge the que and about 20 minutes after cleaning house, they are back. Why and how can I stop this...

Hi,

Have a look at the senders of the e-mails in the queues. If it is postmaster at your exchange server the e-mails are NDR's in response to spammails to non existing users at your organization.

Oh Yeah... 95% are say postmaster. I guess you can't do to much with non deliverable mail.

Um.. I remember setting Exchange 5.5 to route invalid mail to a specific location. I suppose that I could do the same, and that should help cut down on the NDRs. Could I also reject un-resolvable accounts...? Not sure what the down side would be, but this should help as well.
