One thing I don't understand here (for the case someone sets
${sendmail_enable} to NO):

Both, ${sendmail_outbound_enable} and ${sendmail_submit_enable} are
on by default. ${sendmail_outbound_flags} ist set to:

"-L sm-queue -q30m"

so the (var/spool/mqueue) queue is run regularly. Additionally,
${sendmail_submit_flags} is set to:

"-L sm-mta-submit -bd -q30m -ODaemonPortOptions=Addr=localhost"

Wouldn't the latter one be enough to run the queue because of the -q30m?
