So far no.
A manual way is to shut down the scheduler, and then edit
(with vi or similarly behaving editor) ALL the files in set:
and on lines (like)
r smtp heidelberg...
r~ smtp heidelberg...
add a "+" on the second column:
r+ smtp heidelberg...
Then restart the scheduler, and it will consider all such
addresses processed successfully.
You are propably using a version which does not have space for
PID-lock for each transporter, but zmailer-2.99 will change

Sure, just stop the scheduler, WAIT for all the transporters
to finish out ("ps -ax|grep mail" will usually show them all)
Then edit (any editor) files in $POSTOFFICE/transport/
and remove the offending "r " -lines.
Clean up ("rm *~") and start the scheduler.
