Well, the pager process is spawned by "filter", which was spawned from
the user's .forward. So it would be a "bad thing"(tm) for it to run as any
user *except* the user.
Besides, I even checked. I did:
(whoami; $HOME/pagemail.pl 5551212 "test message") > $HOME/out
and "out" then contains:
Running pager process...
ERROR: No permission to open /dev/ttyS1!!!
