Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing esmtp from 'read' accesses on the file /.esmtp_queue/wyVaywGj/mail.

*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests   ************************

If you want to fix the label. 
/.esmtp_queue/wyVaywGj/mail default label should be default_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /.esmtp_queue/wyVaywGj/mail

*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that esmtp should be allowed read access on the mail file 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 esmtp /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Ondřej Lysoněk 2016-08-11 04:06:16 EDT
The main issue here is that the '.esmtp_queue directory' should not be under '/' but under some home directory. This happens when sendmail doesn't have the $HOME environment variable set, e.g. when running from a cron job. This problem is being resolved in [1]. Marking as duplicate.
