afair you can switch between sendmail, postfix, exim , ...without problems
# alternatives --config mta

afaik you have to disable the mta  at least with sendmail
(i have no experiences with postfix and ms)

# chkconfig sendmail --list
# chkconfig sendmail off
# service sendmail stop

the default MailScanner.conf is ok out of the box with sendmail.
check your MailScanner.conf

eg. fc3  ms + sendmail
Run As User =
Run As Group =
MTA = sendmail
Sendmail = /usr/sbin/sendmail
Sendmail2 = /usr/sbin/sendmail

# service MailScanner restart

and check if all is ok
