Exchange 2003 local delivery Retry Queue

Following an Exchange 2003 Server restore with failing backups, to get users to receive emails again without the original database availble,  I had to create a new Mailbox store and associate the user accounts to new mailboxes on that store.  Once that was done, user began to receive emails again.  

However, in the time between the disaster recovered exchange server being able to accept emails and there being a database to actually deliver them to has led to 600 odd incoming items retrying in the Local Delivery queue.  Is there any way to make these get delivered to the new Mailbox store?

Thanks

Ed

If you can see the messages in the queue folder, move them in to the pickup folder and Exchange will process them again.
