ok but which part do i need to edit? the MTA deamon or MSP queue runner?

would my new edit look like this from just chanignt he MTA values or should
i edit the MSP as well to
/usr/sbin/sendmail -L
sm-msp-queue  -bd -OPrivacyOptions=noetrn -ODeliveryMode=queueonly
/usr/sbin/sendmail -Ac -q15m

# Start/stop/restart sendmail.

# Start sendmail:
sendmail_start() {
  if [ -x /usr/sbin/sendmail ]; then
    echo "Starting sendmail MTA daemon:  /usr/sbin/sendmail -L
sm-mta -bd -q15m"
    /usr/sbin/sendmail -L
sm-mta -bd -OPrivacyOptions=noetrn -ODeliveryMode=queueonly
    /usr/sbin/sendmail -q15m
    echo "Starting sendmail MSP queue runner:  /usr/sbin/sendmail -L
