Several, although you should look at /var/log/maillog and see what's really
going on. :-) The four-hour interval is sendmail's normal "retry after a
failed delivery attempt timeout", only the initial delivery attempt shouldn't
fail when the mail is local.
If you're running a recent sendmail, make sure you've got both the MTA (as
root) and the client MSP queue running (as smmsp).
echo '3,0 user1 at ourdomain.com' | sendmail -bt
...that should end with something like:
parse returns: $# local $: user1
