Have you checked /var/log/maillog ?

No, if you have a look again at the script I previously included, it moves
them from the siteroot to /var/spool/ - the GLOBAL one, NOT the
chrooted - and I don't do anything to them after moving, sendmail normally
processes its queue and delivers whatever it has in /var/spool/

That's still my main issue. Nonetheless you may want to look at in the ensim groups, there are some docs
related to MailScanner, mostly related to 3.x though.
