Simple - do nothing.  It will queue automatically.
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Agreed. if its only that short a time there will be no issues and no bounces. Your users MAY get notified of delayed messages but just ignore them. (Depends on config)
