Thank you very much for your prompt answer.

I have updated the policy-targeted to 1.17.30-2.39 but it's the same 
problem, no chance to send mail from php script.

audit(1102024220.525:0): avc:  denied  { getattr } for  pid=8178 
exe=/bin/bash path=/usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix dev=md0 ino=7513871 
tcontext=system_u:object_r:sbin_t tclass=file

I look at the policy-targeted-source under file_contexts in postfix.fc 
there is
sendmail.postfix labeled as /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix -- 

and under /usr/sbin as system_u:object_r:sbin_t         sendmail.postfix

rpm -q -l postfix | restorecon -R -v -f - changes to
system_u:object_r:sbin_t         sendmail.postfix

which of them is correct ?

Sorry for my bad reply before, next time i start i will right click to new.

Thank you very much
