exim4 and maildrop


i've exim4 and courier maildrop delivering mail to users, with LDAP
lookups for various data.

this works fine, and has been for a few months. however, any .mailfilter
files don't seem to be getting read, despite the presence of said file.
when i add an option to the router to set the home dir of the transport
(transport_home_directory) to the relevant user mail $HOME (*NOT* in ~/
but defined in LDAP (with a lookup to fetch the value)), i get:

2004-11-15 21:41:28 XXXXXXX <XXXX@XXXXX>: local_delivery_courier transport output: /usr/bin/maildrop: Invalid home directory permissions - world writable.

but they aren't world writable. which confuses the hell out of me. i
just double checked, and they're all set 700, except for the dir in
which they are, which is set 755.

so really, this is 2 problems in one: one is the .mailfilter file isn't
read, and that log snippet which no sense.

"We're not talking about the same thing," he said. "For you the world is
weird because if you're not bored with it you're at odds with it. For me
the world is weird because it is stupendous, awesome, mysterious,
unfathomable; my interest has been to convince you that you must accept
responsibility for being here, in this marvelous world, in this marvelous
desert, in this marvelous time.  I wanted to convince you that you must
learn to make every act count, since you are going to be here for only a
short while, in fact, too short for witnessing all the marvels of it."
