Description Sergio Pascual 2008-09-11 04:52:44 EDT
I have installed mailman and every time that a message should go to the list archives, selinux blocks it.


I get this alarm in setroubleshoot every time a mila should go to archives

SELinux is preventing python (mailman_mail_t) "search" to ./archives (mailman_archive_t). 

I have run restorecon in /var/spool/mailman/archives but nothing changes

Audit messages:

Could you attach the avc's used to generate this policy.

Audit log

This file doesn't include avc to create the rules related with 
type mailman_queue_t;

The rule is needed by the mailman cron and I can't get it at the moment
