I'll admit to being a dinosaur as well, at least to the extent that we
still support uucp dialup customers, and I configure our clients on cable
connections to send/receive their e-mail through our servers using uucp
over tcp. Sometimes the old protocols are exactly what the doctor ordered.
My main question is whether the mail got dumped out of the queue on the
remote uucp host or on his machine locally? The uuclean routines on most
uucp hosts nukes expired messages completely, and doesn't move it to
another directory where it can be retrieved.
The Taylor uucp contrib directory has an old uureroute script that I wrote
years ago that can be used to go through uucp queues to remail messages
where delivery methods have changed.

The cry has been that when war is declared, all opposition should
therefore be hushed. A sentiment more unworthy of a free country could
hardly be propagated. If the doctrine be admitted, rulers have only to
declare war and they are screened at once from scrutiny ... In war,
then, as in peace, assert the freedom of speech and of the press.
Cling to this as the bulwark of all our rights and privileges.
-- William Ellery Channing
