rogue messages in mail queue

I get these from time to time and never worry about them.  Depending on your
spam actions (perhaps you are bouncing spam?) would make sense that an
email to diet at might have delivery problems.  Were they trying to
sell you the most unbelievable diet in recent human history from a bogus
email address? :)  At any rate, the messages could stay in your queue and be
deleted in 5 days (by default).  I lowered mine to 2 days.

Subject: rogue messages in mail queue

Hi All-
I recently started using MailScanner/SA/Razor2 and I must say that it ROCKS!
It has reduced my spam by approximately 90 percent. I have noticed that
since I implemented these tools I have been getting some mails stuck in my
mail queue. The message info are similar to the snipit below...

I get about 5 or 6 a day that I delete manually. Can anyone explain why
these are getting stuck in the queue and possibly offer a fix for this

Thank You
