Description of problem:
Starting postfix after latest selinux policy update
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/postfix/smtpd from 'create' accesses on the file inet.smtp.

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

If you believe that smtpd should be allowed create access on the inet.smtp file 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 smtpd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
