This happens almost every time when trying to synchronize the Draft, Inbox, Trash and Send folder. I do have a screenprint if it is possible to send. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. set all permissions to Group:none, Others:none 2. run Thunderbird and get mails 3. exit thunderbird 4. run Unison to synchronize: errors because of changed properties Actual Results: no special steps Expected Results: I expect the file properties to stay as they were (rw------ of rwx------) and NOT rw-r--r--. Leave or set file properties to rw------ of rwx------
fwiw I see (tbird trunk 2007-09-02-10Z linux) all my profile folders set drwx------ so group and others can't traverse in there. guess that doesn't help if your local mail storage is elsewhere, which it can be.
The folders are indeed set to drwx------ , but some of the files within are set to -rw------- Strangely enough, not all. Maybe those were not changed so were not set.
correction: some files were set to -rw--r--r--
still see this in version 3.1? if so, which files are wrong?
