Remove fetchmailconf completely

Hi. i've been trying to configure my sendmail & fetchmail to work. i'm totally new to this. Sending out mails works fine(i'm glad) but i can't fetch mails from my isp mailbox to be sorted out to local users on my network. i've read up & tried some stuff based on examples from the net but still won't work so i tried using fetchmailconf (out of curiosity).

Now i want to remove this fetchmailconf cos i don't like the thing about using this gui/linuxconf-kind and don't know where all the confs will later be saved. i want to start with a totally clean fetchmail.

anyway, i've removed both fetchmail & fetchmailconf rpms and re-installed fetchmail.rpm. i then tried to use the 'create .fetchmailrc files' method with new pop3 configurations. but instead i got messages which indicates that fetchmail is still reading the old configs from the fetchmailconf i used previously.

What files do i need to remove to completely remove all fetchmailconf files so dat i can start clean?
