    My control panel is reporting a mail caught in the mail queue:

    I'm not sure how this message has been generated. The address it's sending to appears to have spammer reports.

    How to do i clear the mail from the queue?

    Well you have a couple options.
    If you want to just delete the message, you can do the following form the console.

    To see the message id
    Code:
    mailq
    To delete the message you can do
    Code:
    postsuper -d (message id)
    Or you can also temporarily hold the message to retry later
    Code:
    postsuper -h (message id)
    To release it from hold when you wish to retry
    Code:
    postsuper -H (message id)
    And last if you want to flush the queue you can use
    Code:
    postqueue -f
    As far as the message itself getting bounced, it looks like there is not much that can be done as it is on Googles side.

    Good luck!
