Well, the answer is "it depends"...:-)
It sounds like your archive is by queue file, easily checked with the
file command (or any paginator, like less). To view the contents,
you'd then have to use the postcat command. To resend, simply adapt
the instructions for releasing messages from the quarantine as found
in the MS Wiki:
Instead of placing the queue file copy into the incoming folder, place
it in the hold folder (so that MailScanner icks it up and rescan
it)... Why? Because the archive will contain all messages _as is_...
So this is a safety thing;-).
