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

I have relabeled a couple of times since then as well...

Yes I will update tonight to allow system_mail_t to domtrans to exim_t and this
will be allowed.

Looks like this is a rather stubborn one...

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