Hi folks,

I have installed postgrey from the rpmforge repo, but it does not work
well with postfix from CentOS 5.2: I always get the error:

warning: connect to postgrey/socket: Permission denied
problem talking to server postgrey/socket: Permission denied

- snip

You're correct in your assumption that this is an SELinux issue. You need
to write a custom policy to allow connection and writing to the socket.

How to do this is covered in the SELinux Wiki guide here:


and luckily for you, the example used is for postgrey/postfix so you can
use the example provided.

Hope that helps.

That did it. Thanks alot!
