i have just been looking at the services that are running on my server and
have found that sendmail is running at
596    root    19:46    sendmail: Queue runner at 00:15:00 for
597    root    19:46    sendmail: Queue runner at 00:15:00 for

so to me this means
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 -OQueueDirectory=/var/spool/
    /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-mta -q15m -OQueueDirectory=/var/spool/mqueue
    echo "Starting sendmail MSP queue runner:  /usr/sbin/sendmail -L
    /usr/sbin/sendmail -L sm-msp-queue -Ac -q15m

is not starting sendmail correly for the queue folder

any help would be good

many thanks
