Another way to do that is to simply touch the file with a date that makes it
older than your queue lifetime (set in /var/qmail/control/queuelifetime).  I
prefer this method since I don't need to stop qmail-send (which is difficult
on a box that typically has 20-30k messages in queue).  When qmail goes to
deliver the message it will notice it's too old and dump it.

Here's a script I use. I call it nukequeueitem. It shuts down send, 
waits for that to happen, and then nukes the specified items and 
restarts send.

Call it like this:
    ./nukequeueitem 123456 2342454 123123
where the numbers after it are the numbers of the queue items you want 
to nuke.


[ $# -eq 0 ] && exit 1

svc -d /service/qmail-send
echo 'Working ...'
sleep 2s

while ! svstat /service/qmail-send | grep ': down'; do
   echo Still up.
   sleep 2s

for x in $@; do
   echo nuking $x
   find /var/qmail/queue -name ${x} -exec rm {} ';'


svc -u /service/qmail-send
sleep 3s
svstat /service/*
