Postfix mail queue problem

I am using Postfix on rhl9.0
I am facing problem related to mail queue on server
may be it is due to spam mails it was 13225 when i checked. so the mails are so slow

in postfix
default_process_limit is 900
smtpd_timeout = 300s

when i use command
# netstat -an |grep <Server ip>:25 |grep ESTABLISHED

then there was 250 ESTABLISHED connections
when i telnet on server's 25 port then it give response after 10 seconds

what this outut means ,is it due to spam ?

pls sugest
