Uninstall RPM


I have installed RedHat 9.0_RPM package of yahoo messenger. I am using RedHat Enterprise. It is ok and working.

Now I want to unistall it. When I execute the command as a superuser

rpm -e yhmassanger_RedHat 9.0_RPM

is says the yhmassanger_RedHat 9.0_RPM is not installed. But is installed already and working. Could you please give me idea how uninstall it.

Thank you very much.
