VMware Alarm notifications

I had a power outtage and getting non stop VMware alarms..even though the system is back on. I turned off mail until I got the problem resolved thinking I would no longer get the alarms.. but as soon as I re-enabled mail(just popping my mail server info back in).. I am constantly getting them and don't know how to stop it. How can I clear the mail queue in VMware?

**EDIT ** - I did find this article.. but I don't understand the tables that it's speaking of or where to find them.

probably the sql tables used by the vcenter database

if you are getting non-stop alarms, check your alarm settings
you can change from every x min to once
can't help on the sql part for clearing tables though

What is the Alarm - Screenshot please?

Have you cleared or Acknowledged the Alarm in vCenter Server ?

Actually a restart of the Vcenter server cleared this for me. The alarms were power failure alarms I have setup to let me know if the server room had a power failure event.. which it did.
