/sbin/chkconfig <service_name> off

To see the available choices,

/sbin/chkconfig --list

If you're a complete newbie to Linux and Fedora, and run a GUI, try system-config-services... friendlier to the eye, equally usable (well, console is faster, actually)

Thanks jcliburn, that worked:
Code:
chkconfig sendmail off
I can't imagine that i would need sendmail activated when i'm not using any kind of mail service...?

Sendmail is used for system's notifications on login, the system sends root an e-mail with a summary of changes and information in the system's log file(s)
