Assistance with redirecting messages from one queue to another in Exchange System manager

Help!!!!!!!!!!!

We recently tried to migrate Email from one Email server to another in SBS 2003
Now I have 236 Messages that I need to get delivered out to mailboxes on the original server (server.companyx.local).
From the Server Queue in Exchange System Manager it appears they are trying to be delivered to a 2nd server that no longer exists (server2.companyx.local).  How can I redirect these messages to the original server, where the mailboxes exist today?

Name                                Protocol   Souce                        State    Messages  Total message size
server2.companyx.local    SMTP    Default SMTP Virtual Server   Active   236   38,000

What are those messages? Are they valid messages or simply replication messages? You need to confirm they are messages that you actually want.

Yes, They are ALL valid messages I want to be able to redirect to existing mailboxes on server.companyx.local.  Thanks for your assistance.

Stop SMTP Server service.
Go in to the queue directory under \exchsrvr\mailroot\vs 1\
You will find the messages. Cut and paste them in to the pickup directory that is in the same VS 1 directory.
Restart SMTP Server service.
That will force Exchange to process the messages again.

Simon,

That worked for all mail from "external domain email addresses."  However, I still have 100 or so emails from "internal domain addresses."  How do I get those emails distributed locally to the existing local domain mailboxes?  

For clarification your solution worked for emails from google.com domain to companyx.com email mailboxes.  However, it still shows 100 emails in queue for *@companyx.com emails sent to other *@companyx.com mailboxes?

That is the only solution to get the email delivered.
If the email is still trying to be delivered to the old server then Exchange must think the mailboxes are located on that server. If the mailboxes have been moved back and all references are correct, then you will have to lose that email and get the senders to resend it.
