Permissions of /var/spool/mail

A collegue of mine found out that the /var/spool/mail permission on a Debian 
system are non-standard:

drwxrwsr-t   2 root     mail         1024 Nov 23 14:23 mail 

(as compared e.g. to a SUN

drwxrwxrwt   3 root     mail        5632 Nov 23 14:44 mail


Is there any reason for this? He complains, that imapd cannot create lock 

Thank you.
