AFAIK This is a part of the user docs that come with the Majordomo
package. It's not part of Sendmail's aliases setup.

You need an alias like
majordomo: "|/path/to/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
And, you'll need
in your /etc/aliases file ie. the aliases for Sendmail. (Don't forget
to run newaliases after adding this.)
Mail "just sits there" presumably because it's being delivered
to your user "majord" (check your mail spool /var/spool/mail/ to
see if the mail to "majord" is there).
Once you are able to direct mail to the wrapper/majordomo program,
you can then test for correct file permissions etc. You'll
get warning message(s) if something's amiss here.
