I have a large number of queued up messages (due to my earlier router problem) and I cannot seem to get them moving again. I'm trying to follow the advice from this message:

I've changed all the queued messages to have a W in place of the E and I set my SMTP module to try every 3 minutes to speed the process) but the mail is not moving out of the queue.

So, now I'm ready to try the first method mentioned -- the submitted folder. Can I just move them from the queue folder to the submitted folder? It is not clear why Aaron opened them in BBEdit first. Do they require editing before going into the submitted folder?
