SBS 2003 - Re-Deliver Mail Stuck in "BadMail" folder?

Hi,

Is it possible to re-deliver mail which is stuck in the "BadMail" folder on a SBS 2003 box?

I originally had an issue with configuring exchange and the POP3 connectors which has now been resolved but I'm struggling to figure out how you re-deliver the "bad" mail, I have confirmed that the mail is genuine.

I have tried some obvious steps already such as copying the contents to the "Pickup" folder and then re-starting the SMTP service but to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks but this is not what I'm looking for.

I want to literally re-deliver the mail (not archive it), I know the mail is genuine and I just simply want it to be re-delivered as proper mail to the end user's mailbox.

Any ideas?

The solution didn't actually resolve my issues but I accept that it is the recommended method.
