If you have "Quarantine Whole Messages As Queue Files = yes" then you 
can just take the qf+df pair of files from the quarantine directory and 
drop them straight into /var/spool/mqueue. The next sendmail queue run 
will deliver them. If you don't want to wait for that, then read the man 
page for sendmail, the "-q" section, you want to read how to use the 
"-qI" option in particular.
