Default postfix -- rerouting deferred mail?

I have a problem where I was forwarding emails to a yahoo.com account - and yahoo is now permanently refusing the emails (I was using yahoo to filter out spam LOL and they decided they didnt want to do it anymore).

so I now have a bunch of mails to domain yahoo.com that are sitting in the deferred queue.

I need to forward these to a hotmail account so I can see if anything important is in them - and I've changed the yahoo.com in virtual_maps to live.com - and restarted postfix -
and I've run postsuper -r deferred to rewrite the deferred mails.

but they are still in the deferred queue under yahoo.com.

how can I catch these emails that are now addressed to a yahoo.com address and send them to hotmail.com/live?


also, I guess I better setup spamassassin or the like before hotmail gets annoyed as well...
