many thanks to:

Steve Sandau for his suggestion to check first the queue for connectivity and dns errors.
basically, this is what i got after running sendmail -bp. perhaps a cronjob will delete all
messages with dates of 5 days and will eliminate unwanted mails. Thanks steve.

Before you do anything, you should probably run 'sendmail -bp' and see
*why* they're still in the mail queue. Might be a DNS or connectivity
