If you aren't sure, then do this:
         service sendmail stop
         chkconfig sendmail off
         chkconfig MailScanner on
         service MailScanner start
And as Lewis said, look at the mail headers, you should see signs of
MailScanner there.
Note that by default, SpamAssassin is not enabled. If you have installed
it, you need to enable it in MailScanner.conf.
