Subject: [exchangelist] mail queuing up for extended period[Scanned]

We seem to be having a problem as of late.  When anyone tries to send an 
outgoing email, it seems to take 10-20minutues for the message to be sent by 
Exchange.  I don't seem to be experiencing a problem with incoming mail.  I can 
send any number of test emails in from the outside and they all arrive very 
fast.  Its just the outgoing that seems to be affected.  I do notice that if I 
go to the SMTP queue there are a lot of entries for what looks like 
undeliverable return messages from postmaster.  It would appear that most of 
these domains would be spam-related.  I believe a lot of these are probably 
incoming spam for users that are no longer with the company and exchange is 
trying to send NDR messages to non-existent spam addresses.  Any ideas how I 
could clean this up a bit?  Also would all of these extras cause the delays in 
regular outbound email?  Any help/advice would be appreciated.
