I had this problem with a users account, and was given these instructions
from Gerald Waugh to overcome the problem. No guarantees but it worked for
me.

This should be /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail stop
#stop inetd /etc/rc.d/init.d/inet stop
> cp username anything.
> rm username [a new one will be made if he gets mail]
This should be /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail start
#restart inetd /etc/rc.d/init.d/inet start

This should be /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail stop
#top inetd /etc/rc.d/init.d/inet stop

have you tried just deleting and recreating that user?

when you delete the user, delete their home directory and mail file as well if its not done for you.
