Can an Exchange queue be diverted to another server or the 48 hour time limit be increased?

Recently we had a situation where the power to a branch office failed. We kept being promised that power would be restored overnight for two days in a row but it wasn't until at least 72 hours later. This caused the mail queue at our HQ to start to bounce the e-mails stored in the queue for delivery to the offline exchange server.

Is it possible to do anything with this queue by either re-routing the messages to another exchange or increasing the 48 hour delivery timeout to a longer setting so their is more brathing space before the mail starts to bounce. At the time I couldn't find anyway to do this.

Many Thanks
