relay question

I just came across an Exchange 2000 server at a customer site that has
hundreds of messages in the outbound queue. The server is not currently
an open relay (tested using the telnet method) but all of the messages
are from addresses from outside domains to users in outside domains. Why
would these messages get put in remote delivery queue if the server
doesn't allow unknown users to relay mail?


Thanks for any help
