Kenneth,

You can use the QRYDST command to get a list of all of the contents of
the inbound mail in SNADS. The command is sensitive to the authority of
the user running the command, so you might want to be QSECOFR or similar
authority when running the command. You can use delete any distributions
you don't want to keep.
