I posted this question a few days ago, but I haven't seen any reply. 
Maybe, I missed some.  Here I post it again and hope can get some help.

My system:
os:             RedHat FC3 linux, kernel-2.6.10-1.760_FC3, selinux
enforced, iptables enabled
selinux:        selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-2.75
iptables:       iptables-1.2.11-3.1.FC3
web sever:      httpd-2.0.52-3.1
sendmail:       sendmail-8.13.1-2
squirrelmail:   squirrelmail-1.4.3a-6.FC3

The problem is the SquirrelCheck in squirrelmail does not work when
selinux is enforced (targeted).  If I click "Check Spelling" in
squirrelmail's Compose windows, it does not do any spell checking and the
system log shows:

Feb 16 09:07:25 pippo kernel: audit(1108566445.074:0): avc:  denied  {
search } for  pid=7899 exe=/bin/cat name=spool dev=hda3 ino=470497
tcontext=system_u:object_r:var_spool_t tclass=dir

If selinux is disabled, then it works well.  Does anybody run fc3 with
selinux enforced and run squirrelmail?  If yes, please try "Check
Spelling".  Does it work in your system?  If yes, how did you make it
working?  or how to fix this problem?

I appreciate all the help!
