[lug] mail uses sendmail instead of postfix

somehow postfix got installed after a SuSE upgrade (did not research the
causes) and - it works quite well except when mail is sent via the unix
The mail command somehow uses sendmail and this causes problems:
Mar 19 00:15:00 puck sendmail: f2J7F0f23146: SYSERR(root): Cannot
open hash database /etc/aliases.db: Invalid argument
The aliases database formats differ and sendmail fails reading the aliases.
How can I influence mail to use postfix instead of sendmail?
