I do not have that ruled be honest that is what I am thinking.  When I 
check the "Current Sessions" of our Exchange Server SMTP Virtual Server I see 
someone there connected for more than 5 this normal.

Also, how can I track down the culprit if the above isn't a threat????

Have you ruled out Virus activity? if not I suggest turning on SMTP
logging (if not already on) for you SMTP gateway and look for suspect IPs,
IE an ip of a workstation talking to your gateway, this should not be
unless that machine has a need or design to do so. They shouldn't be hard
to find, indicitive of a virus launching its own SMTP engine and pounding
out messages from a legit IP address on your internal subnet.
