How to stop and restart sendmail daemon?


I wast to clean up a stucked mail spool, but one huge file always remains.
I suppose that it is because the sendmail daemon is running.
How can I stop and then restart the sendmail daemon?

There does not seem to be an init.d directory (it is a FreeBSD machine). What to do then?
