Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/postfix/local from 'create' accesses on the directory Maildir.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that local should be allowed create access on the Maildir directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep local /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
