Releasing emails from quarantine with sendmail

I thought this was a winner, but although the email is not scanned the
"Always looked up last" is still triggered and a db record is created.
I also retried the sendmail line with -OQueueDirectory=/var/spool/mqueue but
i get a rare permission error on the queue, i think that option is not valid
using sendmail to send email, it just works when sendmail is a daemon
recieving emails (maybe a consecuence of the monolithic architecture).
As a last option i will tweak the "Always looked up last" function to avoid
logging specific localhost traffic. If i found a workaround with sendmail i
will post it,
Thanks for all the comments,
