Yes, I do. I was proud of myself that I was able to stop it. The server was under a load of ~34, so I was barely able to shell in, but I was able to get in, stop exim and clear the queue. I was impressed with my newbie linux skills. :D
Here is a copy of the email that still had a couple thousand destinations in the queue before I deleted it.
'reseller' was the account name, and resellerdomains.org was the domain used.

I am Mr. John Michael, Auditor General Natwest Bank Group UK, and I live
in the United Kingdom. I am writing you the mail as an opportunity in my
office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.
In my department, I discovered an abandoned sum of £10.5 million British
Pounds Sterling Ten million five hundred thousand British Pounds) in an
account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr. Morris
Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of
Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000,
Including his wife and only daughter. You shall read more about the crash
on visiting this site.
Since I got information about his death, I have been expecting his next of
kin or relatives to come over and claim his money because I cannot release
it unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the
deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.
Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only
Daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the
Knowledge of this fund behind for the claim.
It is therefore upon this discovery that in my department now decided to
make business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or
beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement
since nobody is coming for it and I do not want this money to go back into
Government treasury as unclaimed Funds.
The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that such money remained
after some time the money will be transferred into banking treasury.
I agreed that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, while
the balance will be for me. I will disburse the funds according to the
percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account.
Please be honest to me and trust is our watchword in this transaction.
Note: that this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you
receive this mail you should contact me by email. All necessary
arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been
finalized. We will discuss much in details when I do receive your
If you are interested in this project contact me for further Directives,
Thank you very much and God Bless you.
Mr. John Michael.
