one thing i forgot to mention:

if there's any mail left in the sendmail queue after the conversion,
then postfix won't know about it and won't be able to deliver it.

before you uninstall sendmail, shut it down so that it is no longer
accepting incoming mail. then flush the mail queue so that no outbound
mail gets lost in the transition. this may require that you have another
machine set up as a smart host, just to get all outbound mail onto
another machine.
