Hi,
URGENT URGENT!
there's a message stuck in our mail server's send queue (qmail) and we're getting tonnes of "undeliverable" reports, ihow do I delete all mail to a certain address from qmail's queue?
Be kind to me, I'm a windows boy.
Thanks
Steven

also use qmail-clean command but it cleans all bounce mails

ensure that before run this command you have to stop the qmail-send

qmail-clean reads a cleanup command from descriptor 0, performs the cleanup, prints the results to descriptor 1, and repeats

ok, so I don't know what the "variables" thing in it's readme are all about, but it doesn't seem to do anything anyway. - that's the qmhandle one.
the wholoe qmail-send thing, do I download it? there's a qmail-clean in /var/qmail/bin, but how does it work, there's no man or anything.
:(
