Probably you've done this but...

service MailScanner stop

service sendmail stop          [Wait a while to make sure the processes

ps -elf | grep sendmail

[kill any sendmail processes]

ps -elf | grep sendmail                 [to check]

service MailScanner start

Now if you've still got loads of sendmails running odds are they are
being called by MailScanner to deliver mail or are children of the other
sendmail processes.
