It will be MailScanner that will move emails from to mqueue 
once it has done its job on them.  And yes MS is working perfectly with 
your version of sendmail and RedHat.  Make sure you started MailScanner 
through its "service mailscanner start" (it may be "service MailScanner 
stop" depending on your version) and don't forget to "chkconfig 
mailscanner on" (or "chkconfig MailScanner on").
