Hi All,

I want to know how to grep and delete (remove) files .

What I need is that there are some unwanted out going mails in the queue in
my Centos 4.4 Sendmail Server. I can find them with the below commad.

 mailq /var/spool/mqueue/ |grep '<>'

Then It displays all the mails of that type withg their ids in the following
way.

[root at gateway ~]# mailq /var/spool/mqueue/ |grep '<>'
