Even after changing permissions/ownership from
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root bin 9220 Dec 12 00:14 movemail*
-rwxr-sr-x 1 root mail 9220 Dec 12 00:14 movemail*
the problem still occurs. The problem manifests itself as an emacs
error message: "Renaming: permission denied, /var/spool/mail/deisher,
/var/spool/mail/deisher+". However, changing
drwxrwxr-x 2 root mail 1024 Feb 3 07:41 mail/
drwxrwxrwt 2 root mail 1024 Feb 3 07:41 mail/
solves the problem. Will this create any *new* problems, security
