To clean up mangled mail in the IBM SMTP environment you create a data
area like this:

   crtdtaara dtaara(qusrsys/qtmsclean) type(*char) len(1) value('c')
aut(*all)

You need to stop and restart the SMTP server using the ENDTCPSVR and
STRTCPSVR command. To clean up mangled mail in the MSF area you need to
stop MSF (ENDMSG command) then use the *CLEAR option on when starting
it:

   strmsf option(*clear)

Depending on the API you are using to send mail you may also need to
restart the SNADS distribution queue:

   snddstq dstq(qsmtpq) pty(*normal)
   snddstq dstq(qsntpq) pty(*high)
