thread1733-1625648: Emails in Shadow Redundancy queue wont deliverExchange 2010

I have 2 exchange 2010 servers with a Dag. The primary site went down for a minute and failed over to the secondary site.

I did not notice this for about an hour. During this time there was a queue ("Shadow Redundancy" Delivery type) that was collecting emails.

I failed over the secondary site to the primary site and emails continued to be delivered.

The emails in the Shadow Redundancy queue have not been delivered yet. I have checked to see where the email are to be delivered, all that are in the queue are all local to the
email server. The queue has the name of the secondary email server.

I have been watching the queue for several hours. Is there a way to force these email to be send or move them to another queue to prompt to be delivered again.

RE: Messegaes stuck in Shadow Redundancy queue

The shadow redundancy queue is a place where a temporary copy of messages go until a delivery confirmation is received that the original copy was delivered. So the messages in that queue don't really need to be delivered--they are supposed to expire once confirmation is received. And I'm guessing that the failover disrupted the confirmation process. At some point they should time out or disappear.
