Is the file owned by the 'postfix' user? Is it executable? Did you rename it to the proper postfix queue name format? Put you move it to the right queue folder for your installation?

Here's some examples.. (I use two postfix installations, one for incoming - /var/spool/, one for outgoing - /var/spool/postfix).

[root at psimf001 spam]# pwd

[root at psimf001 spam]# chmod +x AAC40746521.00000

[root at psimf001 spam]# ls -l AAC40746521.00000
-rwx--x--x 1 postfix quarantine 5878 Jun  9 03:12 AAC40746521.00000

[root at psimf001 spam]# cp -p AAC40746521.00000 /var/spool/postfix/incoming/A/AAC40746521
