"Inbound awaiting delivery" would mean the messages are in the MTS-IN
folder and haven't yet been picked up by the MTA. OTOH, it may also
mean that the messages really don't exist at all, but that the
imcdata\queue.dat file simply thinks they exist.
The first course of action would be to stop the IMS and delete the
imcdata\queue.dat file. Restart the IMS (which will rebuild the file
from the contents of the imcdata directory and the MTS-OUT and MTS-IN
folders) and see if those message still show up.
If they do, you can use the MDBVU32 tool to examine (and remove) the
contents of the MTS-IN folder (after stopping the IMS, of course).

I doubt the MTA is the culprit, here.

If you do this, you should also remove the imcdata\queue.dat file, in
which the IMS maintains its queuing data.
