[CentOS] Dovecot under CentOS-6

I've been running dovecot on a CentOS-5.7 server.
Now I'm moving over to another server running CentOS-6.2.
I thought I was running dovecot on the new server,
but in fact there was an error during the setup,
with the result that incoming mail finished up in /var/spool/mail/
rather than in ~/Maildir , where I wanted it to go.

Now I'm wondering if there is some way
that I can re-direct the mail in /var/spool/mail/<mymbox>
so that it goes through the system as though it were just arriving?
I mean, so that it gets distributed into the correct folders
under ~/Maildir , as specified in .procmailrc .

Any suggestions gratefully received.
