Gnus isn't the culprit (too bad I don't know what is:(
Well, even though you're all stumped as to why that .gnus file doesn't
work, I think i've tracked the problem down to something other than
When I "inc" my mail for mh, i get this message:
inc: unable to lock and fopen /var/spool/mail/lars
And when Gnus calls movemail to get my mail from the spool file, I get
this error message:
nnml: Reading incoming mail...
Getting mail from /var/spool/mail/lars...
movemail: Permission denied for /var/spool/mail/Ea10189--see source file
Cannot read active file from nnml server.
This isn't the only problem with my mail setup. When I send messages
with something like "echo test | mail lars" i get this message after
waiting a few minutes:
cannot chdir(/var/spool/mqueue): Permission denied
The perms on /var/spool/mqueue are
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 1024 Nov 25 17:16 mqueue/
which can't be right.
I'm starting to think there are serious problems with my mail setup, and
I have no clue as to whether they are related or not :(
