System load very high

We had a problem whereby when the load average went very high (not
due to  mailscanner and we don't run spamassassin yet) sendmail
processed entries in the mail queues intermittently. Once the QueueLA
parameter, which controls the level of Load Average at which sendmail
stops processing, was adjusted in the sendmail config file this
cleared the problem for us.
