you'll need the email saved as queue files (a setting in MailScanner.conf)

the cd to the directory with the queue files in it..

cp -p *H *D /var/spool/exim/input

(assumming the post MS exim queue is in /var/spool/exim as in the
MS-exim how-to).

force delivery of the message with

exim -C /usr/local/etc/exim/configure.out -M message-id

where message-id is the name of the files you just moved without the
  -D and -H
