Default Sendmail, Postfix configuration in ISPConfig

Hey Guys,
I'm having an issue with sendmail and postfix. In my ISPConfig Admin backend, I have the MTA Type set to Postfix, however the server seems to be using sendmail instead. How do I know? Every morning this week my users mysteriously stop getting mail and the only way I can seem to get mail delivered is by issuing a:
/etc/init.d/sendmail restart

The maillog doesn't specify much, at the point where it crashes I just stop seeing instances of both spamd and sendmail. Nothing about it crashing.
Does anyone have any advice on how to solve this issue? I'm flexible about using postfix or sendmail -- which ever just works without me having to restart it every morning

Which distribution are you using? What's the output of
netstat -tap
