Description Alexander Larsson 2007-11-09 17:27:33 EST
I enabled lmtp delivery from sendmail to cyrus-imapd (uncomment the cyrusv2
stuff in /etc/mail/sendmail.mc). This causes selinux errors each time sendmail
tries to deliver a message by connecting to the /var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp socket.

raw message:

avc: denied { write } for comm=sendmail dev=dm-0 egid=51 euid=0
exe=/usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail exit=0 fsgid=51 fsuid=0 gid=0 items=0 name=lmtp
