    I keep getting these types of warnings below and can't figure out how to
    delete them out of the exchange queue view forever. Most items in queue view
    don't mention having any messages to send out and they all appear to be from
    bogus domains/accounts.
    How would I get them out/deleted from the queue view permanently?

    Message Alert rec'd via email:
    _________________________________________
    Alert on NSASERVER at 12/31/2005 9:19:41 PM

    A large number of messages are pending in the e-mail server send queue.

    Verify that you have Internet connectivity. If you can view Web sites
    normally, contact your Internet service provider (ISP) to determine if there
    is a problem with their e-mail server.

    You can disable this alert or change its threshold by using the Change Alert
    Notifications task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.

  2. Hi Marc,

    This is related to your earlier post .... your mail server is accepting mail
    for both valid and invalid email recipients at yourdomain.com. This is a
    common spamming technique, and it's easy to stop with native exchange
    functionality.

    You need to enable Active Directory Filter - so only mail to valid
    recipients is accepted.

    Exchange queues fill with many non-delivery reports from the postmaster
    account in Small Business Server 2003
