Exchange POP3 connector was mis-configured - where did the messages go?

A client with SBS2003 uses POP3 connectors to check individual mailboxes at their ISP, and then messages are put into their Exchange mailbox.  One connector was correctly set to pickup her mail at the ISP, and was configured to put it into a User Mailbox.  Unfortunately, no Exchange mailbox was specified in the connector.  Now that I fixed that she's receiving new emails, but none from the period during the misconfiguration.  I'm under the impression that her senders did not receive bounce or delayed delivery messages.

Where are the missing emails, and can they be captured?

No, the senders wouldn't receive any Non-Delivery Report because the messages were in fact delivered to the ISP's POP3 server which was their technical destination.

There is a setting on the POP3 Connector Manager on the last tab (Troubleshooting) which designates a fail-over mailbox.  Was one designated?

If not, check in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Networking\POP3\Failed Mail

You're right!  How do I re-submit them to Exchange for delivery?  (I can't wait to award you the points on this question.)

The easiest way is to use Outlook Express.  You can drag them into the Inbox and then resend from there.
