Angry Reprocess /var/spool/mail

Hi there,

we had few problems recently, because of the spam and viruses.
Few domains was hit very hard and it lead to home directory being used at 100%.

We cleaned users tmp files clamav, and are free again, but are in need of help.

There seems to be many emails left in /var/spool/mail and we just can't find a way (other then moving /var/spool/mail to other mail server).

Is there any way in which we could force reprocessing of those mailboxes again, so that we can deliver them to user home boxes.

We are using maildir.

Thank you.
