Description of problem:
The selinuxtroubleshoot email preferences window is difficult to use/understand as it's not clear what one is supposed to enter into the text box to add. I guessed that it was supposed to be for an email address, but it's not at all clear, and when I entered an address there was no way to specify the Filter Type, nor to even have an idea of what Filter Type options are available.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open setroubleshoot
2. Open File->Edit Email Alert List
Actual results:
Difficult to tell how to actually do something useful with this screen.

Expected results:
Should be clear how to use this screen to set up an email address to send alerts to, preferably with the general types of alerts that can be sent as examples or listed options.

Additional info:
Almost certainly not a regression.
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2009-11-06 14:07:21 EST
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".

The "Setroubleshoot Email Preferences" window still looks the same.
