Default F12: AVCs: sendmail, mounted filesystems, and spamassassin

I am not sure I understand how to interpret AVC errors and
to determine if these AVC complaints need to be handled or
not. Any advice would be appreciated!

I have these in order of most current dates:
====================================
Summary:

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/perl "execute" access on /usr/bin/python2.6.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by spamassassin. It is not expected that
this
access is required by spamassassin and this access may signal an intrusion
attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration
of the
application is causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug
report.

==================================
NOTE: The following is one of many AVC complaints
from which it peers into mounted filesystems of different
OSes (F9, F11, Ubuntu, and so on)

How do you prevent SELinux from peering into certain
mounted filesystems it has no business to be doing?
==================================
Summary:

SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/updatedb "getattr" access to
/md/RF11D1/etc/poker-network.

Detailed Description:

SELinux denied access requested by updatedb.
/md/RF11D1/etc/poker-network may be
a mislabeled. /md/RF11D1/etc/poker-network default SELinux type is
default_t,
but its current type is unlabeled_t. Changing this file back to the default
type, may fix your problem.

File contexts can be assigned to a file in the following ways.

* Files created in a directory receive the file context of the parent
directory by default.
* The SELinux policy might override the default label inherited from the
parent directory by specifying a process running in context A which
creates
a file in a directory labeled B will instead create the file with
label C.
An example of this would be the dhcp client running with the
dhclient_t type
and creating a file in the directory /etc. This file would normally
receive
the etc_t type due to parental inheritance but instead the file is
labeled
with the net_conf_t type because the SELinux policy specifies this.
* Users can change the file context on a file using tools such as
chcon, or
restorecon.

This file could have been mislabeled either by user error, or if an normally
confined application was run under the wrong domain.

However, this might also indicate a bug in SELinux because the file
should not
have been labeled with this type.

If you believe this is a bug, please file a bug report against this package.

Allowing Access:

You can restore the default system context to this file by executing the
restorecon command. restorecon '/md/RF11D1/etc/poker-network', if this
file is a
directory, you can recursively restore using restorecon -R
'/md/RF11D1/etc/poker-network'.

Fix Command:

/sbin/restorecon '/md/RF11D1/etc/poker-network'
