deferrals appearing frequently in nightly logwatch report


fedora core 8 i386

i want to make sure my mail server is behaving as expected. the past two nights, i've received logwatch notices below. the section in question is the 20 or so deferrals from some .ru e-mail address. i've since removed the user that registered on my wordpress blog (wlvp@yandex.ru) and added the three IP address to iptables DROP, but these "e-mails" still look like they're in some queue unless i'm reading wrong. i've removed known usernames in case you find the numbers useful. why are all these deferred messages here? if they're stuck in a queue, can i remove them? the section in bold below in my concern. thanks in advance!
