Description John Antony 2007-10-30 22:46:34 EDT
    SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail (system_mail_t) "search"
    to ppp (pppd_etc_t).

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail. It is not
    expected that this access is required by /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail and
    this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the
    specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to
    require additional access.

Allowing Access
    Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials.  You could try to
    restore the default system file context for ppp, restorecon -v ppp If this
    does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this access.
    Instead,  you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you can disable
    SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
    against this package.
