Looks like the uninstallation was not clean. I guess it is unwise to fix this as this would take a lot of your time.
DO an uninstall again - make sure you remove /usr/local/nagios folder completely
Install again.

Did you check you have the binary
/bin/mail

installed? if not, locate it on your distro and install it.
