Description of problem:
When I start up snmpd using the default snmpd.conf file provieded with RHE 5.0
(CentOS 5.0) I get the following SElinux error in /var/log/messages:
Oct 28 23:02:39 harker setroubleshoot:      SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/snmpd (snmpd_t) "search" access to mail (etc_mail_t).      For complete SELinux messages. run sealert -l 37a5928a-d008-466d-8c15-87f75b59a2f9

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start snmpd:
   service start snmpd
2. Look a messages log file:
   tail /var/log/messages

Actual Results:
Not sure yet

Expected Results:

Additional info:
I think this is an oversight in the SElinux policy for snmpd that should be corrected in the next maintenance relase
