You get no greating message by Sendmail or does it reject your attempt
with a temporary failure message (DSN 4.5.1)?

If its last, then you have a high load and you can adjust that Sendmail
behaviour in the sendmail.mc config file. If it really happens because
of disk activity then you have a really big problem. It would be good to
know whether the system runs FC1 or FC2 and which hardware you use.
