I think it can't be done in general, unless you stop the sendmail
daemon, run a script over the queue to adjust the queue priorities
in your favour, and restart sendmail.
The general rule is that larger messages and messages for which delivery
has failed earlier are processed later.
One could probably come sort of close by setting both ClassFactor and
RecipientFactor to zero and RetryFactor to a negative value, but I've
never even attempted this ...
