I vivify messages by re-sending them.  This works okay.  But it does
add additional new headers that an original message would not have.  I
would rather not have those because it is not a perfect recovery.  But
it would be really unusual for someone to actually notice this though
and so far after many years of doing it that way I have never had
anyone ever say anything about it.  As far as I know no one has ever
noticed the extra headers.

If a message is in /var/lib/mailman/spam what method do you use to
recover the message?  It is probably cleaner than the way we do it.
