In those cases I stop MailScanner (/etc/init.d/MailScanner stop) and
start only the incoming sendmail (/etc/init.d/MailScanner startin). When
the message in question has arrived move the corresponding df and qf
file to the outgoing queue and do a queuerun for that queueid.

After that you can just start MailScanner. Sendmail will probably
complain about port 25 already beeing in use, but that doesn't matter.
