This is good info. Here's another twist on this to make even easier.

Using a good FTP client, such as SecureFX from VanDyke Software, connect to your server and CD to the directory your mail queue is in (it's /var/spool/mqueue on my server) then, in the file window, click the column bar for date sorting the list in date order. Then select all files that you think are too old and delete them. Follow that with a cron tab to execute a "sendmail -q -v" every morning about 2 am and your problems should go away.
