As suggested by you and by "Karsten M. Self" <kmself@ix.netcom.com>:

    -Mrm   The  arguments are interpreted as a list of message
           ids, and each message is  completely  removed  from
           Exim's  queue,  and  forgotten.  However, if any of
           the messages is active, its status is not  altered.
           This option can be used only by an admin user or by
           the user who originally caused the  message  to  be
           placed on the queue.

bash-2.05# exim -Mrm 15N0vD-0000r7-00
Message 15N0vD-0000r7-00 has been removed
bash-2.05# tail -1 /var/log/exim/mainlog
2001-10-28 16:11:48 15N0vD-0000r7-00 removed by root

When responding, please quote the entire original message.
