Hi,

one account on the server was hacked, so this client spammed all the time. After changing the password of this Mailaccount, no new spams were detected.
But the Mailqueue were extremly large (some hundred thousends of mails).
So i stopped qmail and extracted all mails with qmail-remover. After starting qmail i got an empty queue. So far so good.

The files of the "old" queue were stored in another folder. there i killed all the spams. Now i have a few good mails in it.

How do i get those mails back in the queue, that qmail is delivering them ? Those mails named xxxxxx.info and xxxxx.mess ???

Thanks for helping me

You can use qmail-inject to push all those files back into the queue.
