[Mailman-Users] Server migration question

So, we pretty much successfully moved our mailman installation from the old 
Solaris box to the new Red Hat box.

Only one small problem.  Of course.

We (and by we, I mean me) had failed to reduce the TTL for the MX record 
that points to our mail server, which is now on a new machine.  So some 
mailman mail is still being delivered to the old machine.  I've stopped the 
qrunners on that machine, so things are just piling up in the qfiles/in 

>From my examination of the files there, 99% of what's coming in is SPAM, so 
I don't care about delivering it.  But for the remaining 1%, I'd like to 
eventually deliver that mail, via the new mailman installation, so that it 
ends up archived in the correct place.

Is there any reasonably-straightforward way that I can take the *.db and 
*.msg files that I care about and move them to the new installation?  Or is 
what I really want to do to use bin/inject, passing it the individual .msg 

Thanks in advance for any hints...
