Sounds like you have the normal sendmail process running as well as
MailScanner. You should have
1) 2 sendmail processes, both of which are started by the MailScanner
init.d script. Neither one is started by the sendmail init.d script (and
this script should be disabled).
2) 1 or more MailScanner processes (you will get 6 by default) started by
the MailScanner init.d script.
