Get a good antivirus software for Exchange server, like McAfee
Grouspshield or from TrendMicro. That is the right way to resolve your
problem. Deleting MX record will not help you.

Subject: [exchangelist] MX records

Hi, i have some viruses that are being sent from some internal infected
host to my exchange server. i think its using the mx record in our
internal dns to send it. Outside i have a postfix/calmAV/Spamassassin
box that filters everything coming in.
My question is- i want to delete the internal mx record for exchange.
AFAIK, exchange will use and A record to find other exchange servers in
an internal org. Will removing the mx record affect anything with my
exchange org? 
I have a public mx record set up already for internet email. this points
to postfix.
