The qfile cannot be opened for writing. This is either a permission
problem or SELinux is denying access. You need to:
1) Verify the user/group the MTA is executing the post command under,
then look at the permissions on the directory and file.
2) Examine /var/log/messages and/or /var/log/audit for "avc" messages,
these log SELinux denials.
3) Try turning SELinux off (/usr/sbin/setenforce Permissive)
4) Contact me off list for a trial 2.1.6 rpm (I've created the rpm but
have not tested it yet, you could be the guinna pig :-)
BTW, the RHEL 4 mailman rpm already has the security patches that
prompted the 2.1.6 release, but 2.1.6 has some other new stuff as well.
