Hello. I am running exim on my home debian woody. I am using pine as my
email client and it shows the following error, whenever it checks the
[Mailbox Vulnerable - directory /var/spool/mail must have 1777 protection]
This is obviously a directory permission problem, and not a pine problem
(So it is a valid question for this mailing list). How is it vulnerable?
What exactly does 1777 protection mean? Currently the mail directory has
drwxrwsr-x 2 root root 4.0k Jan 17 21:45 mail
Thanks in advance.
