You haven't given us any information about the system you're running. Is your box or are you just trying to remove that email from the queue? The cron job isn't finishing because it can't find /usr/sbin/sendmail-msp so maybe your sendmail isn't properly installed.

I am running UBUNTU Linux 9.04. Yes, my box is I checked the Synaptic Package editor, and Sendmail is installed. I have uninstalled and installed again and it is still the same thing.
