Email the consulate.  This process is fairly new, but an increasing number of posts on this web site indicate that more and more consulates are now doing this.......

More and more of them are being done electronically. Did you get a welcome letter when your visa was approved? I'm from Canada and my welcome letter stated that it would all be electronic, so I just picked up my passport, and when I went through the POE, they just looked up my file.
