I cleared things out as you said, and I had already made backups of
main.cf and transport, so I simply used yum to remove both sendmail and
postfix, then re-installed them. Both of the config files were saved
during the install as .rpmnew - which is impressive.

I've done that, and used it. If I'd understood what it would do a
little earlier I would have saved myself a lot of troublt ;-)
Thanks, Craig, James, and the person who has been sending me helpful
This workstation has just received a couple of messages from the box I
was working on, that have been queued since this afternoon, so
obviously all is now well.
