A couple of things to check:

- if you grep /etc/rc.d/init.d for 'spamd' you'll soon see if
  'spamassassin' is there or if Centos uses a different name for it.

- I have a feeling that service may not run a script that isn't
  initialised in the appropriate runlevels, so it might be worth
  either running chkconfig --list or looking in the various
  runlevel directories to see if the appropriate aliases are there.
