Actually, you can turn it off by changing your local mailer in the sendmail
configuration. Procmail is set to be your local delivery agent in It is set by default on Linux.  I do not know what OS you are
running, but most *nix'es have /bin/mail (or others) available for use.

Read more about changing it in chapter 6 of the o'reilly sendmail book.

Some info links for you to read up on are:

For what it is worth, do not remove procmail. I do not see from a system
support perspective why you want to remove it. What is the reason for
wanting to remove procmail?
