    Go on, have a guess
    How was it installed?

    If it was via the MailScanner rpms, then you should simply have to remove those and undo any exim changes you made.

    If it was through my script, then there are uninstall instructions on my site.

    If all the MailScanner dirs have been removed, then it may just be a matter of killing off those MailScanner processes.
