No, to clariy that was after changing sendmail.conf to

DAEMON_PARMS=" -OPrivacyOptions=noetrn -ODeliveryMode=queueonly

Which, for varous reasons will cuase the second queue to start.  It was long
and I cut out the previous dialog ;p

Some reason reloading sendmail didn't do it, but a reboot did.

No, because that is your original 1-queue sendmail startup script. You need
to run /etc/init.d/MailScanner restart to do what you want.
