Question Sendmail adding delay of 1 day to one particular email


I have a problem on one of my servers running Redhat AS 4 Update 4.

The mail comes from cron, showing the output of the job that has run. The mail is delayed by one day. Here is the extract from the maillog:

Mar 26 19:00:05 server1 sendmail[14291]: m2PJ01bU014291: to=<user1>, ctladdr=<user1> (1009/1012), delay=1+00:00:04, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=relay, pri=3739618, relay=[] [], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (m2QJ04t9008251 Message accepted for delivery)

All other emails send with no delay.

Could anyone suggest where my problem may be?
