Following up on you still have to tell sendmail about the
additional queues?

Outgoing Queue Dir = /etc/MailScanner/rules/outgoing.queue.rules

and then in that file:
From:   /^[a-g]/                /var/spool/mqueue1
From:   /^[h-m]/                /var/spool/mqueue2
From:   /^[n-s]/                /var/spool/mqueue3
From:   /^[t-z]/                /var/spool/mqueue4
FromOrTo:       default         /var/spool/mqueue5

This just splits into 5 queues based on the first letter of the sender's
address. Hopefully that gives you enough of an idea of what you can do...
