The default behavior of Sendmail is to try delivery for 5 days so if
it's older than that it's not gonna get delivered. In your case you have
only df-files with no matching qf-files, and since the qf-files contains
the header information you can never deliver those anyway so you can
just as well delete the df-files.
No files in your mqueue-directory are old enough to worry about.
