I have them too, and I guess they are benign. The /etc/daily is run with
its output redirected into sendmail (so you the message you get is simply
the output of the script). I'd bet that if you'll check your
/var/log/maillog files you'll see that the message in question (i.e. 
CAA02204) is simply the /etc/daily message itself. It simply starts to get
sent while it is still created. The warning is from the invocation of
mailq as one of the last commands in /etc/daily, and note the asterisk 
near the ID of the message indicating that it is locked (since it is 
currently being sent).
