Yes. Stop the SMTP service, go to the exchange server program files, then go to 
\mailroot\vs2\queue and delete everything manually from there.  Keep in mind 
that if there are valid emails there you will delete those as well.  So double 
check before deleting anything

Subject: [exchangelist] Spam

We were recently used as a relay, even though the system was previously
configured to prevent it. To solve the problem a new smtp virtual server
was created and the default one disabled, as it can't be deleted. The
problem is that after a reboot the default smtp server re-enabled and
started sending spam out again. Is there a way to flush the default smtp
server, so we can return to using it.
Thanks for any help.
