The problem is due to a flag in Mprog line in sendmail.cf file. The flag

FYI, here is the original question:
> Here is a question about sendmail. If the incoming mail is for >a real user, it gets sent immidiately to the user. But if it is for a >command file entry in /etc/aliases, say, > >test: "|home/scr/test" > >the mesage will get queued in /var/spool/mqueue, and processed later >(within an hour, probably because of -q1h option when starting sendmail). >Is there a way to configure sendmail so that mails to command files get >processed right away?
