From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417 BuildID: 2002041711 Is there any reason that movemail should require write access to the /var/spool/mail directory? It will not work if it only has write access for the mailbox file itself, but seems to require the permission for the directory. Making this directory world-writable seems like a bad idea if it's not necessary... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: n/a
It needs write access to be able to create the lock-file.
/var/spool/mail should have 0177 permissions just like /tmp.
