[thelist] deleted file after redesign

I had to delete a file after a redesign about two or three months ago.
It was a major file eg. it displayed some ads and for some reason it is
still cached by many many browsers. The error_log is filling up with
404s just for this file.

I just meta tags to prevent caching in the new layout, but the old site
lacked these.

Is there a way that I can force the browser to empty its cache or at
least stop requesting this file?

I'm using Apache on a Linux box for this one. So probably, I could add
some directive to the httpd.conf?
