Question Removing Sendmail in Red Hat 7.1


I have looked everywhere for a way to remove the sendmail in Red Hat 7.1. I have read about several security issues with it and I am not going to use it so I would really like to remove it since I will not be using it. Everything that I have read on how to remove it doesn't match up in 7.1. I'm guessing that it's placement or file names have changed because I am having trouble finding the names of the files and directories that were posted about pervious Red Hat releases.

I use gnorpm, gui interface, just click on the package you don't want then uninstall.

I tried to use rpm but I don't know the package name. It seems to be different than it was in other Red Hat releases.

Hi
If you use gnorpm as above, it gives you a list of all packages. If you click the find button, and look for packages providing sendmail, it should find it.

I was unable to install a gui interface because I am running a 66mhz 486 with a 1MB video card. I have searched for sendmail by doing rpm -q sendmail and it said sendmail is not installed. So maybe it isn't installed after all. If it is not installed then why do I get mail?
