We used to have a sendmail on wich we also had spam problems!
Here is a script we used to purge the sendmail queue of unwanted messages.
Just type in the identification string of the mails you want deleted when
I know this one is not perfect as it deletes mail actually processed by the
sendmail daemon but I presume someone has an idea of how to solve this. We
processed by using the script and afterwards another one to delete empty
files or when possible killing the sendmail daemon, running the script and
Hope this helps
echo SPAMs suppress
echo -n Enter identification string:
if [ $ID ]
echo empty string !
ls > /tmp/spam.lst
while read FICHIER
check=`grep -i $ID /var/spool/mqueue/$FICHIER`
if [ ! "$check" ]
echo $File is OK
echo $File is not a spam keep it >> /tmp/nospam.lst
echo $File is a spam kill it >> /tmp/spamok.lst
echo $File is a SPAM
# echo $FICHIER
done < /tmp/spam.lst
echo That is fini !
