Actually I am running selinux-policy-3.0.8-24.fc8 and I am still getting the
same SELinux alerts, never stopped...

Comment 3 Robert Staaf 2007-10-20 12:23:52 UTC
I have relabeled a couple of times since then as well...

Comment 4 Robert Staaf 2007-10-20 12:25:09 UTC

Comment 6 Daniel Walsh 2007-10-22 15:41:27 UTC
Yes I will update tonight to allow system_mail_t to domtrans to exim_t and this
will be allowed.

Comment 9 Robert Staaf 2007-11-02 11:56:26 UTC
Looks like this is a rather stubborn one...

SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/exim (system_mail_t) "execute" to (exim_exec_t).
