Let me say up front that I have not used postfix before.

Do you really want to use sendmail here?  Do you even have sendmail
installed if you are using postfix?

Looks like spamassassin ran as expected.

This makes me think that spamassassin tried to exec /usr/sbin/sendmail
and could not find it.  I really suspect that you want to use postfix
here instead of sendmail which is probably not loaded on your system.

Now postfix does not know what to do since spamassassin threw an error.

Not sure where postfix keeps it files.  Sendmail normally keeps queued
messages under /var/spool/mqueue if they were in transit or deferred.

I'm so miserable without you, it's almost like you're here.
