As Larry already explained to you, this is not a perl modules
question. It's hardly a Perl question. sendmail shouldn't take that
long. maybe it's misconfigured.
Use one of the modules on CPAN if you don't want to be bothered with
the details of all this: Mailtools comes to mind.
A post about double-forking has been posted to clp.misc very recently.
Go over there to find it, please.
