    I 'd like to see 2 options within the "Manage Mail Queue" section:

    1) possibility to delete (maybe deliver also) set of messages (some kind of checkboxes near each message and button "delete selected").

    2) showing and sorting by account name that really sent that message (it will be VERY useful to track spammers).

    I see this in this way:
    1) default page "Manage Mail Queue" shows list of accounts with pending email count for each and number of total messages in queue. There is also "show all" button.
    1a) after clicking on "Show All" button all messages shown.
    1b) after clicking on account link - only messages for particular account shown - here should be the "delete all messages for this account" button.



    Is it hard to implement?

    Go on, have a guess
    But they're meant to sit there, that's what a queue is for, it's part of how all modern MTA's work. You ought to leave it alone and let the emails timeout. If you have emails in your queue from spam bounces then you you should stop bouncing them and use :fail: instead of :blackhole: or modify any spam blocking apps that you use.

    :blackhole: deletes the email and :fail: bounces them to the mail queue. At least that's how it works on my servers.

    you can not blackhole all user accounts.

    so you need mail queue management.
    and as it is now it is not very useful/powerful.

    no, you can't.
    tweak settings has other settings but not those we'are here talking about.
