Did you make sure to follow this item in the installation notes:

Be sure to add APPENDDEF(`confENVDEF', `-DSMFI_VERSION=4') to your 
site.config.m4 script and rebuild/install both sendmail and the 
libmilter, otherwise the -e option will do nothing.

If you want to use the -e option in milter-cli, then sendmail, 
libmilter, and milter-cli MUST be built with the libmilter extensions 
enabled as documented.

What is the log file saying when it starts? What options are you using?

Its just a file of command line options one per line or all on one line 
or a mix.
