Question Installing PostFix on RH 7.0

I trying to install Postfix20010202-4.rpm but I keeps getting the message:

error: failed dependencies
sendmail conflicts with postfix20xxxx
postfix conflicts with sendmail-8.11.6-2.7.0

When I try to uninstall sendmail I get a message

error: removing these packages would break dependencies

smtpdeamon is needed by fetchmail-5xxxxxxx
smtpdeamon is needed by mutt-1.2xxxxxx

I read on the board that postfix is easier configure and run as a mail agent then sendmail.

Any help would be appreciated in getting passed these errors and installing Postfix.
