Firstly - you'll need to make sure that the user you are running as has
permissions to the relevant directories and files - then you can run:
$ rm <path to spool dir>/qf<msgid> <path to spool dir>/df<msgid>
to remove the message pairs - I don't fancy your chances or removing
anything from the Incoming queue before it get's processed by
MailScanner (unless you've a huge backlog).
