Looks like you've split the sendmail command across two lines - "-q1h" is an

option which should follow sendmail on the same line.

If that doesn't answer it, post lines 47 to 54 of /etc/init.d/sendmail and 
we'll look in more detail.

 If the result confirms the hypothesis, then you've made a measurement.
 If the result is contrary to the hypothesis, then you've made a discovery.
