Sorry about leaving the version numbers out the first time.

Here is some output:

This is CentOS release 4.2 (Final)
This is Perl version 5.008005 (5.8.5)
This is MailScanner version 4.50.15

Sendmail 8.13.1

Lock type is blank so I guess that means posix?

> Do the emails show up under mailq?

Yes they do. (Didn't know about that one.)

> Are there corresponding qf/df files for the emails in question?

Yes there are.
