Description Joel Uckelman 2011-09-08 14:01:54 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/postfix/bounce from 'search' accesses on the directory /var/spool/postfix/defer.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that bounce should be allowed search access on the defer directory by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep bounce /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
