    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
    To delete the message you can do
    postsuper -d (message id)
    Or you can also temporarily hold the message to retry later
    postsuper -h (message id)
    To release it from hold when you wish to retry
    postsuper -H (message id)
    And last if you want to flush the queue you can use
    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!
