As julian said, the sendmail process is started by mailscanner, the
follwing commands should fix your problem

chkconfig sendmail off
/etc/init.d/sendmail stop
/etc/init.d/Mailscanner stop
sleep 10
/etc/init.d/Mailscanner start

(And i like this one:)
chmod 0000 /etc/init.d/sendmail

Just to be sure.
