No, just delete the actual file that line relates to so when MS  
restarts it builds a new one. This is (IMHO) the greatest advantage to  
Matt's solution over the custom function that Steve posted, the cache  
is retained and you can have the memory advantages of using spamd and  
per user configs etc.

Works great here!
