Recover erroneously delivered emails in Exchange 2010

I created a mailbox in exchange 2010 but misspelled the email address.  This was a box for a bunch of automated emails from our alarm company that cannot be resent.  What happens to emails sent to Exchange when it doesn't find a match for that email address on the server?  Is there a way to recover those and deliver them to the correct address?

If the account did not exist and the email address was invalid, then the emails would have been rejected.

You might be able to setup the email address and replay the log files from Exchange and that might get the rejected emails back, but I am only speculating there.
