Sendmail problem please help

i just installed a new Fedora 7 to a server
understand i am still a noob
i set up a MediaWiki site
i wanted to test to make sure that users would get an email if they signed up to the wiki
the user never recieved the email and i got an error in the "setroubleshooter browswer"
the error was
"Summary:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail (system_mail_t) "read" to eventpoll:[7596] (httpd_t).

Detailed Description:
SELinux denied access requested by /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail. It is not expected that this access is required by /usr/sbin/sendmail.sendmail 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."

so my guess is that there is something i need to turn on in Fedora to allow me to send emails from this server. the sendmail is turned on as a service what else do i need to do to allow this to happen please

The audit2allow utility may help you. Read the man page for it, which has some examples of how to use it.

Security Level and Firewall --> Security Level Configuration can change SELinux to Disabled.
I do not know how highly that is recommended, but I do it, and sendmail has no problems.
