Where are you trying to purge them and what emails are you actually talking about?

Well, our panorama is sending emails to us after every rule is hit. It was a mistake by a co-worker. Now it is clogging the mail queue on my postfix server. I am currently dropping the traffic with iptables, however I would just like to purge any mail that is queued in the panorama. Is this possible? The rule to send email has been disabled, but all the queued email is still trying to send.

Okay that makes more sense. You could try simply clearing out the email server profile, commit, and then readd it back in. Once you clear out the email server profile listing it should take all the queued mail with it.

You can configure Log Forwarding profile to every Security rule on Actions tab.

To configure what Log Forwarding profile will do can be set under Objects > Log Forwarding

Remove email setting from Log Forwarding profile and you are good.
