Need to remove

So I recently setup postfix on my mandrake 9 box. Had it working great and then I decided I wanted to play around so I installed sendmail (from source not rpm) didn't like it, couldn't get it configured right. Now I tried to unistall it and revert back to my postfix setup. Only problem all of my outbound email is still trying to route through sendmail, not postfix. I receive email no problem and I send email to other users on my server, but I can't send email out to anyone. I figure the only way to fix this is to erradicate sendmail from my box. Help please.

No guarantee but...

From the source dir where you compiled sendmail do:

`make uninstall`

it may or may not work.

Good Luck
