!HELP! How to avoid the mail-lock (fetchpop / popclient)
Hello fellow debians,
Last week, I moved over from slackware 3.0 to debian 1.1. What a
relief, really, except for one thing: my connection with the world.
Everything installed just fine, However, my mail really bothers me.
Here, at my work I have to retrieve my mail from a novell server. I
can do this by `fetchpop' or `popclient'. This is all right, but when
I'm usingthe mailagent Pine as an ordinary user, I only can read the
inbox file, but I cannot alter it: pine can't get the mailbox lock
from the incoming folder. However, as root I do not have a problem.
Last night, I managed to work my way around the problem with
chmod-ding some directories and files. But at the xx-th startup,
Everything was ruined again. For deleting my mail, I have to use W95
If someone can help me with this problem, I would be very, very
thanks in advance,
