Yes it is. Any ideas how to quickly delete these files?
Here is what I'm thinking.
1. Stop mailscanner / sendmail.
2. Type mailq and get the list of active messages that are in the
queue and move them to another folder.
3. delete all other files in /var/spool/mqueue
4. move the active files back to mqueue.
5. Start Mailscanner
However, any ideas what I should do about /var/spool/mqueue.in ?
How do I know which of these messages are active and which aren't?
