Check that
         chkconfig --list | grep -i mail
shows sendmail switched off in all runlevels, and MailScanner turned on
when it should be.
You might need to do
         chkconfig sendmail off
         chkconfig MailScanner on
         service sendmail stop
         service MailScanner restart
and then try it again.
