answering my own question, looks like I need to write a script.  OK. I
found some info here:

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/journal/v11/f$getqui.html

thanks for your help.  I will try to loop through the entry's that have

for all entry i in queue
  $ DELETE/ENTRY=i MULTINET_SMTP
next i

or something like that.
