I believe I have finally solved my own problem.  There were no AVC messages in the message log, but I dug into the audit log and found that the reason the service was being denied access to the files, even when they where chmod 777 was SELinux.  I created a custom SELinux policy based on the alerts generated after a reboot and failed email2trac test and it appears to have fixed the problem.

Comment (by bas):

This setup will never work for root and apache, because the postfix user
will start up email2trac and this userid has no write access to the trac-
database. That is why you need run_email2trac for this. It will change the
userid from <postfix> to the <apache> user.  The process of changing user
fails some how and i think it has to do with not allowing to run suid

Can you just put this is /etc/aliases:
test: /var/tmp/test.sh

/usr/bin/id > /var/tmp/postfix.user

else use the other postfix setup:
