Like Jeff said, this looks very much like bounces generated by spam which was sent with a forged, undeliverable sender address (big surprise, huh?). Pileups like these will happen every once in a while, and there's really not too much you can do apart from putting some effort into making sure your systems stay clean. With a bit of care it is possible to remove messages from your delivery queue, but unless disk space is really tight or the messages are just too d**n annoying, you can just leave them there to automagically go away after a few days. As for "giving spammers a hard time", you could for entertainment (and possibly some information value) try putting that exact string into your favorite search engine. Cheers, -- Peter N. M.
