ctlinnd throttle
ctlinnd drop innfeed!
hand-edit the files in spool/innfeed to remove all bad MIDs
ctlinnd cancel '<mid>' for all found bad MIDs
insert something like this into filter_art in
   if (length($hdr{"Message-ID"})>240) { return "long Message-ID"; }
ctlinnd reload filter.perl
ctlinnd begin innfeed!
ctlinnd go
