Last night I upgraded to 4.21-9 from 4.19 and ever since I get this in my maillog every 5 minutes.

The everything restarts. I'm not losing mail but every 5 minutes sendmail is trying to send the 600 spam bounces that are in the out queue.

In MailScanner.conf is 

Child Processes = 2
Restart Every = 14400

That should be every 4 hours?

Any ideas?
