we've had problems with getting our spoolfile hammered and overflowed b/c of one e-mail address autorespone. we've block the an address that has been flooding our spool file. we therefore have no more entries coming (from that address) into our spool and being downloaded by our mail server. however some of the older entries, that haven't been downloaded yet, have these unwanted entries mixed in with them. how can i filter out/or delete these unwanted entries from the spool file? any help would be appreciated...
