    This sounds like you have s spammer on your system. The only way to clear it out is to
    delete your mail queue, but I would recommend tracking down the spammer first
    and perhaps fixing and securing other problems you might have.

    the mail queue has only 900 odd emails. clearing that also did not help in reducing the size.
