[WNYLUG-Users] qmail

Actually, neither one of these works for me.  Primarily the first does not work because the system cannot find qmqtool and second, because the find statement you gave me gives the following:

find: paths must precede expression: find
Usage: find [-H] [-L] [-P] [-Olevel] [-D help|tree|search|stat|rates|opt|exec] [path...] [expression]

Stop qmail

make sure it is stopped (takes a bit)

use qmqtool -d -f 'spammessage at whatever.com' to delete the message

start qmail.

If that doesnt work try: (make sure there is no other mail in the queue as this will delete everything in the queues)

stop qmail

find /var/qmail/queue/mess -type f -exec rm {} \; find /var/qmail/queue/info -type f -exec rm {} \; find /var/qmail/queue/local -type f -exec rm {} \; find /var/qmail/queue/intd -type f -exec rm {} \; find /var/qmail/queue/todo -type f -exec rm {} \; find /var/qmail/queue/remote -type f -exec rm {} \;

start qmail
