Can you resend BadMail emails in IIS/SMTP Service?

Is there any way I can move the emails out of the BadMail folder in IIS/SMTP server and into the Pickup folder so that they can be resent?

I notice that for each bad email that gets dropped into this directory, three files are created (.BAD, .BDP, .BDR). Assuming I can put these badmails into
the Pickup folder, would I just need to drop in one of these files or all three?

Thanks in advance. Tryst.

Yes!

Firstly backup everything in the badmail folder (in case it doesn't work.)
Then stop the SMTP service.

Remove all files except the .BAD files
Rename all the .BAD files to remove the .BAD extension (in CMD in the badmail folder rename *.BAD *.
(so email.BAD will become Email.) ie NO EXTENSION
Move all the mail into the pickup folder

Start SMTP Service.

Good Luck!

Hi and thanks for the reply, Wadski.

This is on a live server, so it is 100% safe now, isn't it?

If you doubt me have a quick look on google and there'll be loads of people saying the same.

As long as you backup incase you make a mistake you will be fine!
