Help - messages outbound messages stuck in remote queue due to GFI crash

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
We have an Exchange 2000 server running GFI MailEssentials 12.  A disk failure corrupted our installation of ME (no GFI services running) and now all our outbound mail is stuck in queues marked for "Remote delivery".

Removing/reinstalling GFI is going to be a long process - is there a way I can reset the default SMTP virutal server to route mails directly until we get GFI back?  There are no other Routing Group connectors or smart hosts in ESM, so I don't know how to get the queues out of "Remote delivery"

Hope to get an answer soon - our users depend on being able to send mail!

Thanks in advance,
