Your configuration has one or a combination of one of the following problems:

A) Your server is an open relay.
*Search for how to close open relay in Exchange on the Internet.

B) A network device, probably a computer part of your LAN, has become
infected with a virus and is relaying through the Exchange Server.
*Run up to date AV software on all network connected devices.

C) Your server is infected with a virus.
*Do you run and scan your server with up-to-date AV software?

D) Your users are sending out SPAM on purpose. :)
*Highly unlikely, but anything is possible.

Hope this helps.
