Can anyone tell me how to allow apache (httpd) to send mail, i.e. to use
the smtp port?

I'm trying to enable notifications in Trac and am seeing this in the
audit log:

type=AVC msg=audit(1133985478.317:38): avc:  denied  { name_connect }
for  pid=2175 comm="httpd" dest=25 scontext=system_u:system_r:httpd_t
tcontext=system_u:object_r:smtp_port_t tclass=tcp_socket
type=SYSCALL msg=audit(1133985478.317:38): arch=c000003e syscall=42

auid=4294967295 uid=48 gid=48 euid=48 suid=48 fsuid=48 egid=48 sgid=48
fsgid=48 comm="httpd" exe="/usr/sbin/httpd"
type=SOCKADDR msg=audit(1133985478.317:38):

How do I modify my policy to allow this?
