EV SMTP - empty storage queue

Hello all,

EV12.3

Situation:
Journal Archiving only.
5 EV SMTP Archving servers.
HW Loadbalancer distributing messages accross the servers, based on running EV SMTP service.

When on 1 server the EV SMTP service is stopped, that server does not get messages in the Holdingfolder anymore. It does however get messages in the Storagequeue.
Where do these come from?
Are they somehow being send from the remaining 4 active servers?
How can I make sure that the storagequeue remains empty?
Should the SMTP Archiving task also be stopped and disabled?
Should the storagequeue be closed?

Thanks.

Regards. Gertjan
