    The answer is simple instead of trying to clear MailQue
    Delete or retrive All The Spam submitted By Spamassasin.
    P.S. This Worked For ME
    Explanation :
    setup Email account to retrive spam Most likel;y Your Default Domain Email

    Setup replacing with your info :
    User: useremail@domain/spam
    PAss: regular useremail password
    POP3: mail.domain.tld

    To My understanding Spamassasin moves or Filters emails that it's recognized as spam tp separate mailbox
    but if the Mailbox fills Up to the Max it can't hold anymore so it spits to Mail Que. Hope someon that knows more about Spamassasin will confirm that .
    Well It Worked for Me as i had over 4000 Spam Messages.

    Good Luck

    If you enable the SpamBox (not just SpamAssassin alone) the filtered spam will go to that spambox.

    As for spill over, that would probably mean there is some hard limit to the size of the spam box and it is getting reached and somehow becoming a non-routable address so the email starts to go to the default box instead. That'd be my guess, but since there's no real docs on it, it's hard to say.
