I have a backlog of old emails in my JIRA queue that I would like to delete, hundreds. I have read that stopping the JIRA service and starting it again will clear this but the emails just seem to go back into the queue again when started.

If its still putting the outgoing emails in queure again then you must check with the SMTP server configration with JIRA or if there is a memory problem. You can check for the cause in the application server log file.

It actually looks like some sort of email loop as apposed to a back log of emails. I cleared all the emails from the inbox of the account that jira uses. Now it appears that there are 5-6 tickets that are in a loop of continuous emial notification/jira comments being added.
