Need Help Fast! Sendmail related...

how do your remove a queued message?

I have a client who sent out a 13MB email which in turn ate up all of our T1's bandwidth. It made it's way to our external POP server and now it is causing the mail server's CPU load to go through the roof.

We use qmail and when I execute sendmail -bp, I get this:

  done  local

Another question is this, why is sendmail showing me these things? I have a completely different machine acting as our smtp gateway. Is this the pop queue?

And to prevent some of these users from pulling this email I went into their /home/user/Maildir/new directory and deleted the email. This won't harm anything will it?
