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:

Code:
27 Aug 2003 19:31:23 GMT  #36193  13300105  <kristyi@mydomain.com>
  done  local   whitneyv@mydomain.com
  done  local   tiffanye@mydomain.com
  done  local   marys@mydomain.com
        local   maryjane@mydomain.com
        local   kathyb@mydomain.com
  done  local   kathrynp@mydomain.com
  done  local   josee@mydomain.com
        local   joef@mydomain.com
  done  local   derric@mydomain.com
  done  local   autumnr@mydomain.com
  done  local   amys@mydomain.com
  done  local   amy@mydomain.com
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?
