That's because I've deleted thousands of emails already, and run the
delete script once every hour or so in order to keep it living.
(I bet your "mailq" command didn't take almost an hour - that's what it
did when I ran it this morning)

Run something like:
mailq | grep "Recipient address rejected"

This will currently show 283 emails, all backed to svr1.

To clean up the queue (of this type of emails only), run 
mailq |./ |postsuper -d -

from roots homedir.

The mails you are seeing are the ones generated after the other ones
have been sitting in the queue for a couple of days. They were also in
the thousands before, but since I try to cut down the queue at every
chance I get now, it usually doesn't get that far, so they don't
increase that much.
