No, I've also problems with squirrelmail when trying to send emails
with attachments (simple emails without attachments are OK):

audit(1102761151.989:0): avc denied { search } for
  pid=1841 exe=/usr/sbin/httpd name=spool dev=dm-6 ino=224002
  tcontext=system_u:object_r:var_spool_t tclass=dir

audit(1102761496.288:0): avc denied { getattr } for
  pid=1841 exe=/usr/sbin/httpd path=/var/spool dev=dm-6 ino=224002
  tcontext=system_u:object_r:var_spool_t tclass=dir

What could be the solution? Backup the configuration and reinstall
FC3 from scratch?
