I am no expert here on selinux, but when I have run
into problems with it, I try the suggestions:

# restorecon -v /home/don/.fetchmailrc. 

You might want to
relabel the entire directory using 

# restorecon -R -v /home/don.

If this do not work like you are stating, the next
step is to try the two commands as su - SuperUser
# touch ./autorelabel
# reboot

and if that does not work check the selinux policy to
see that it is the latest one. Selinux is difficult
many times, but there are some kind users on this list
and the fedora-selinux-list that are very helpful. 
You may also read the pages on the Wiki  



If you have set the selinux mode to permissive and
then made the respective changes that the
setroubleshoter encouraged you to do and then started
selinux in enforcing mode and you get denied avcs
again, you may need to file a bug report against the

fetchmail-6.3.7-2.fc7 or 
Policy RPM:   	selinux-policy-2.6.4-40.fc7
