I set my MailScanner to 'quarantine whole messages as queue files'

now, when I want to re-send a quarantined message because it is found
to be harmless/wanted after all, all I need to do is to copy the qf* and
df*  files to /var/spool/mqueue.

But... cyrus lmtpd has a duplicate check mechanism. The original message
which had the attachment removed will already have been recorded, and
the re-inserted one will be dropped due to the same message-id.

Does anyone have a recipe for cleanly handling this?

a) edit the message-id in the queue file?
b) use a script to re-send the message (possibly as its own attachment)
[ mets-send, otehrs ]
c) other ideas?

thanks and regards
