Switching selinux to enforcing mode stops emails from being sent out. I hit this while testing bug 455235 (see for reproducers).

Isn't that a selinux policy problem then?
Yeah, selinux policy definitely. I always file the bug against the parent component with Dan Walsh CCed. Shall I do it the other way around next time?
Well, if it's a change to selinux-policy component the bug needs to be assigned to that component to be included in possible erratas, so yea, i think it would be better to open it against selinux-policy and add the maintainer of the initial component as CC then. Makes sense?
Sure does :) Thanks for the info Phil.
Switching component to selinux-policy.
Fixed in selinux-policy-2.4.6-202.el5
This is the U3 policy.
