Note that mqueue contains accepted/acknowledged but undelivered mails.
Depending on the host's purpose, deleting them may or may not be

My suggestion would be to stop sendmail, rename mqueue, create a new
mqueue and restart sendmail - which will restore mail processing.  You
can then either delete the old (renamed) mqueue or gradually move
groups of df/qf/xf files from there to the new mqueue for processing.
