I was being a bit silly, mixing up the configuration of dovecot + postfix
with setting up spamassassin.
I have two CentOS-6.4 servers, in different places.
One has been running dovecot + sendmail since CentOS-5,
and the upgrade to CentOS-6 did not affect this.
The other server has never run dovecot until now,
and I had not realized that sendmail had been replaced by postfix
as the default MTA.
It seems to work fine.
