Do you know anybody who has? I have a problem with my setup when I
want to send an mgetty-fax as user.
andre@mir:~$ faxspool 31 newfile.ps
cannot write to /var/spool/fax/outgoing!
andre@mir:~$ ls -l /var/spool/fax/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Aug 31 20:09 incoming
drwxrwxr-t 2 root fax 4096 Oct 28 12:32 outgoing
though andre is a member of group fax. It works only as root.
