Selectively delete from Exim queue

From last nights dictionary attack on one of my clients domain (32000 mails), I have about 8000 still left over. I would just like to delete them, without really clearing the other messages which are genuinely there for some reason or the other...for instance msgs of those clients whose boxes are full. They'd probably clear it off in a few hours or a couple of days i dont want them to lose their mails really.

Is there a command so I can delete messages from the queue with specific text in the header or the footer? Btw my msgs are in subdirectories and not one single directory.

Thanks all
