Is the e-brake handle pulling all the way up, like it isn't connected anymore? If so, then the e-brake needs to be adjusted.

On most Mazdas with rear calipers, there is an allen bolt under a cap to release the caliper piston, did you release this? How did you get the caliper pistons to go back into their bores?

I actually had the same problem with my e-brake after changing out the brakes. All I did was go to an open parking lot and threw the car in reverse then put on the brakes and it adjusted back and started working.
