As root, issue the following command

/etc/init.d/sendmail stop

To restart it:

/etc/init.d/sendmail start

Thank you very much for your answer and attention. I checked the version with uname and I was surprised to see that I have Linux 2.4. I thought I have solaris 9. I have to stop the sendmail and delete some mails in the queue and restart it. Thank you in advance for the support.

The command from fpmurhy's post should also work on Linux on a Sun web appliance.
