Exim: force retrying delivery of mail in local spool

My mail got stuck in the spool a few days ago due to misconfiguration of ~/.forward. After fixing the file, the commands to force retry of delivery are:

cd /var/spool/exim/msglog
exim -M *

or

exim -qf

Provided, of course, your shell is smart enough to do * expansion properly.
