 I found another fix related to the 
 "queue-pr not available for sendmail programs"-Problem:
 The offending Program is smrsh: It is used in modern sendmail distributions
 for secure executing of "| blah" aliases.
 It seems, that queue-pr is not considered as secure (because of the
 s-bit maybe) and smrsh refuses to execute it.
 Fix: find the line "Mprog, ...." in /etc/ and replace
 /usr/sbin/smrsh with /bin/sh. Be aware: this seems to be a security hazard.
 I'll read on: Maybe, there is a way to convince smrsh, that queue-pr is secure.
