The following was filed automatically by setroubleshoot:


SELinux is preventing spamd "append" access on /razor-agent.log.

Description détaillée:

SELinux denied access requested by spamd. It is not expected that this access is
required by spamd 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.

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug
report (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi) against this package.

Is not a good place to put a log file move it to a more appropriate directory like under /var/run.  And fix the labeling.
