That looks like the the message you get when trying to start Sendmail
with it already running. Use "chkconfig --list" to see at which
runlevels Sendmail and MailScanner are set to be started, Sendmail
should be off at all levels. Use "service sendmail stop" and then
"service mailscanner restart" to get rid of rogue Sendmail processes and
start fresh with MailScanner.
