We have exim4 set up on Debian as a smarthost to send mail via Google's mail servers. We use Google Apps for everything else, so this made sense. Problem is, the password for the smart host account was changed, causing exim to bounce the messages back and then freeze them. Now I have a large collection of unsent mail in
I have tried running:
exim -d -M 1Mx6IS-0006bC-3h
but that causes the bounced message to be sent, not the original. I can see a copy of the original message in
/var/spool/exim4/input/1Mx6IS-0006bC-3h-D under the line
------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------
...but I have not figured out a way to take this frozen bounced message, and convert it back to the original message so it can be retried.
