I'm no sendmail expert. If this will actually prevent it from ever getting
into the queue then I suppose it might work.

I guess it depends on how the logic is structured in sendmail (is it? ;)...
if "sending a message right now" is basically a special case, then I
suppose it might work. If "sending a message right now" uses the same logic
as "run a delivery attempt on this queued message", then probably not.

We'll see?
