yes, if you're quick and careful.
it's safer to shut down your MTA while deleting the messages and then
turn it back up (we exim users would typically put exim in queue-only
mode while messing with such a directory.)
there is some digest spool directory on your disk somewhere, look for
$digest_work_dir in your majordomo.cf file.
go to the subdirectory of that directory. all the messages will be in
there. you will need to 1) remove the test messages and 2) close up the
names; e.g. if you need to remove 003 and 005, leaving others up to 006,
you need to
rm 003 005
mv 004 003
mv 006 004
and also make sure that the ownership and permissions are undisturbed.
