    I am sure there are other ways to do this but this is what I have been doing through ssh

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim stop
    rm -rf /var/spool/exim/input
    rm -rf /var/spool/exim/msglog
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/exim start

    If some one else has a better way to do this please fill us in.

    It only seems to remove some of the messages...

    When trying again it says:

    no message ids given after -Mrm option

    Something like this will also work:

    exiqgrep -o 0 -i | xargs exim -Mrm

    Stupid me!

    Looking in apache status I could easily have seen the pid s and kill them.

    After doing that it was solved immediately.
