You can do something like
Code:
service exim stop
find /var/spool/exim/input -maxdepth 2 -type f -delete  
service exim start
It will delete all outgoing emails in the queue

Hello :)

You can also use the "Delete All" option in:

"WHM Home » Email » Mail Queue Manager"

Keep in mind this will delete all email in the queue, including legitimate emails that may exist.

Thank you.

It is best to not delete any Exim queue files directly. It is possible to damage Exim enough that it will not restart. Instead, use the tools Exim provides to manage the queue. The Exim cheatsheet is very helpful for this:
