Mail pending 754

Sorry for my newbness to Linux in general.

Ok, I did mailq and it came up with 480 entries.  From the entries I'm
guessing that I shouldn't care about these because they are for example:

i13I6CcX001139      747 Tue Feb  3 13:06 <>
                 (Deferred: Connection timed out with

They look like spam things.  So what happened to the other 500 or so
emails that mailstats saids in que?  Or should I not even worry about
it.  It just seems that my 500mhz machine might not be keeping up.

Mailstats counts the number of mails pending by counting the number of
qf files in the directories configured. It is possible that you have qf
files being left without the corresponding df files. As someone
previously said you could type mailq at the prompt to see what the queue
tells you.

Now it says 954.  Someone please tell me what this means?  Does it mean
what it says, that there are almost a 1000 emails waiting to be
delivered?  No one has said anything to make it seem this way though.

On my stats it says "Mail pending 754"

Is this a big number?  I use mailstats and that's what it shows.
