Hello Steffen,

sure I am fine with that.

Even better it would be to have a recipe for a custom SELinux policy to 
not be mislead switching off SELinux at all. Such a custom policy is 
necessary when storing mail in the user's homedir because files created 
there get a wrong SELinux context for that usecase by default.

An general overview about this topic can be found on

Kind regards
