comment Is it necessary to manually rebuild a sendmail.cf file or is this done automatically on service restarts?
So if you change .mc and then type make all does it build the .cf? If yes, then it rebuilds on restart. The easiest way to check all this of course is to touch /etc/mail/sendmail.mc wait 10 seconds and then service sendmail restart. Then ls -l /etc/mail/sendmail.* and check the dates.

comment sendmail on centos drops connection after n e-mails sent
Welcome to SF Andrzej! Since this is a VM, I am assuming that in the case of a single mail per recipient, this will be queued locally by a web (php) form, so it might be a good idea to follow Vixie's advice and have QUEUE_LA and REFUSE_LA have the reverse values (deny accepting connections in order to clear the queue first).

Is it possible that you can post your sendmail.mc and /etc/mail/access files?

comment Stopping incoming spam with sendmail
sendmail (as in sendmail.org ) is for both sending and receiving mail. Second, your answer is about postfix, while the OP uses sendmail.

Can you run a diff command between the two sendmail.cf files and show us the differences?

Can you check your sendmail.mc (not .cf) and see whether FEATURE(queuegroup) is listed there?

comment Sendmail Exception reached when thousands emails sent in bulk mail script. Has sendmail a email-sent limit for a given process?
@EmilioNicolás Because you cannot put 25000 mail addresses in the command line, therefore you have to break them into pieces and mail one piece at a time. There is your queue.

To work around this he has to implement a queue. He has to place these mail addresses in a queue from where a separate background process takes chunks of email addresses and mails them the appropriate message.

My (memory) mistake: freebsd.mc is what you need to copy from. I will update my answer.
