please do not highjack threads to start a new one (by replying to a 
message and starting a new thread).

Look here http://www.sendmail.org/~ca/email/man/sendmail.html

Depending on your distribution and configuration you might have to 
adjust your startup script.
Here's one option regarding "how often to process the mail":

-q[time]    Processed saved messages in the queue at given intervals.

Then there is at http://www.sendmail.org/m4/tweaking_config.html

MaxQueueRunSize		"Essentially, this will stop reading each queue 
directory after this number of entries are reached"
