I just turned on Sendmail on my Mac OS X box that I use as a server. /var/spool/mqueue was empty, but I was getting hundreds of old cron emails. cfedde on #perl pointed me to clientmqueue, where I found 99,798 files. Oops.

killall sendmail and rm * ... argument list too long. perl -le 'opendir $x, "." or die $!; for (readdir $x) { unlink; print }'. There we go.
