Those deferred messages should be in:


Simply take a look at the files to make sure they are the emails in
question, then delete them.  In other odd cases, they may have ended up in
one of the directories under /var/spool/postfix - but those directories are
used for temporary processing of mail - ie, an email might appear in the
'bounce' directory, then gone in the next second.

I’m using Postfix with a Cent OS install on my RT 3.6.3 box. I recently
setup a bunch of new queues and accidently had a typo on one of the queues
in the /etc/aliases file. I sent a test email to that queue and obviously
it errored out since no queue of that name existed. I fixed the problem in
my aliases file and all is well with the world except that I keep getting
an error in my maillog because the mail gate keeps trying to process this
message that can’t be delivered to a queue that doesn’t exist.

Where can I find this message and delete it on the system?
