This should be happening automatically unless you've changed the startup flags 
from the defaults in /etc/defaults/rc.conf.

Read the manpage for rc.sendmail(8). It lists the various options available 
for starting sendmail. The default values for these settings are 
in /etc/defaults/rc.conf. Unless you've changed them in /etc/rc.conf, every 
set of flags contains -q30m which runs the queue every 30 minutes.
