[CentOS] CentOS 6 - logwatch report not in HTML format

CentOS 6 (amd64) up to date with latest security / bug fixes.

The logwatch reports come in plain text even though the config states HTML.

<begin /etc/logwatch/conf/logwatch.conf>
mailer = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t"
TmpDir = /tmp
MailFrom = logwatch at example.com
MailTo = admin1 admin2 admin3
Range = yesterday
Detail = Medium
HostName = www.example.com
Print = No
Output = mail
Format = html
<end /etc/logwatch/conf/logwatch.conf>

The same settings in Debian/Ubuntu servers send the reports in HTML format.

In my search, I did not come across any solution for CentOS 6.

Any ideas on how to get logwatch to generate HTML reports?

Thanks for your help.
