Ok, that's an artefact from the initial (wrong) config then.
I assume you've tried "postsuper -r ALL" without success? If so, all I
can think of that would potentially "fix" things for those messages
would be to manually (hex-)edit the files... A PITA, if you ask me:).
Or just read them with postcat and "recreate the messages" from that
(shouldn't be _too_ complicated a shell-wrapper:-).

DISCLAIMER: I'm just back from vacation, so head might not be screwed
on right/tight, nor brain turned on...:-)
