You should disable the "sendmail" service in Fedora and not use it at
all once you have MailScanner installed. Just use the MailScanner
service to do everything.
So, as the install.sh clearly tells you at the end of running it, you should
chkconfig sendmail off
service sendmail stop
chkconfig MailScanner on
service MailScanner start
and never touch the service "sendmail" again.
