Question Is it possible to have rc.sendmail automatically restart over the weekend?

Good day all,

I am curious to find out if the possibility exists, to have /etc/rc.d/rc.sendmail automatically restart itself every Saturday morning on slack12. The reason I ask, is that one client of ours has to phone and request that we ssh to his box, and manually restart sendmail almost every weekend, as the service stops working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That is what cron and at were designed for.
