deleting not processed email in qmail

Hi,
I have over 600000 emails waiting to be processed in the "not processed" mail queue on my qmail. It seems to just sit there and not move out at all. How do I delete them from the system entirely?
Is there a command that I can type using SSH2 ?
thanks!

You can just delete the files in the queue directory:

rm -f /var/qmail/queue/<queuename>/*

<queuename> is the name of the queue, not sure what the name is, but it'll be the one with 600000 files in it. The -f means "force", so it won't ask you if you're sure you want to delete each files individually.
