I have a strong feeling that you use Samba fileserver for this folder sharing. If so, the
proven way is to use Samba print queue instead of plain folder for this task. Just invoke
some script with /usr/lib/sendmail instead of lpq - and your message from Win machine
will be properly injected to Zmailer queue. Keyword is syncing: printqueue does not start
"printing" before client finishes writing job! Details depend upon destination address
passing technique: propietary header, RFC822 header, job name, etc. Sender address is
always known to sendmail: just Samba authentificated client name.
NB: this message passed from MS-Windows workstation to Postfix at Unix host just in this
way. Humans work with Pegasus Mail, programs (database clients) do it directly. Worms
