I don't understand what you mean.  Clearly it should only query if
sendmail-query-once-function is set to `query', otherwise it would keep
querying forever those users who don't want to use&setup smtpmail.

Yes, of course.  After all, the whole issue that prompted this querying
is that the presence of sendmail is not sufficient to guarantee that
sendmail can be used.
