NOQUEUE is a sendmail error, not a spamass-milter error.

It wouldn't, and it isn't. Your problem is that you're almost
certainly using setgid sendmail to queue messages, and you've got the
permissions set incorrectly. They should most likely be owned by smmta
and gid smmsp, but that's a distribution/configuration dependent

Yes, because it means that whatever is trying to be queued by sa-milt
cannot be.
