Thanks!  I shall give that a try!  And then tuck it away in a file to hopefully never need to use again!

If they are not saved as queue files, they are not in the correct format  
to be copied to (I assume Postfix's) hold queue.  

What you can do is just give them to Postfix as an incoming message. E.g.  

sendmail -i -t < quarantined_message_file  

which will process the message and presumably just put in in the hold  
queue for MailScanner.
