[rt-users] Incoming mail stuck in MTA

You can run mailq and see if there's a queue_ID for that email (assuming
it's stuck in postfix).  Delete it with the following command:
postsuper -d <queue_ID>

Subject: [rt-users] Incoming mail stuck in MTA

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?
