Summary0015947: SELinux is preventing sendmail from 'read' accesses on the file /var/log/maillog.
DescriptionDescription of problem:
New system build. Was working in with firefox.
SELinux is preventing sendmail from 'read' accesses on the file /var/log/maillog.

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

If you believe that sendmail should be allowed read access on the maillog 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:
# ausearch -c 'sendmail' --raw | audit2allow -M my-sendmail
# semodule -i my-sendmail.pp
