Those are system-generated messages, typically an NDR or a delivery
receipt.  The relevant SMTP RFCs cover why this is.

Hello all,
   Running Win2K SP3 with Exchange 5.5.
   I just looked at the Outbound Queues for our Internet Mail Service
(IMC) in exchange 5.5.  There are over 600 e-mails in queue to be sent
and over 590 of them say that they are originating from '<>' .  What
does this '<>' mean?  All originating e-mail should be from
'any_user@xxxxxxxxxxxx'.  I have relaying locked down to only pc's on my
domain.  Where are these coming from.

Thanks for any info.
