Re: Mailbox problem... messgae too large

I have a mailbox here where someone sent a 141MB (yep.. 141 meg) message to
it, and now we cannot delete that message.

Mail(x) responds with,
fseek: Invalid argument
panic: temporary file seek
Segmentation fault
client email programs time out.

Other than deleting the entire mailbox, does anyone know of an easy way of
getting rid of that one message from the server ?

Any ideas would be helpful as there are other mails in the box which we
don't really want to lose.
