correct settings of /var/mail/user?

Hi folks,

I ran into the problem with mutt. Mutt can not delete my mails due to the access rights.

Looks like something is not correct set. Can someone tell me the correctsetting?

Mine are these at the moment:

ls -la / | grep var

drwxr-xr-x  14 root root    4096 18. Mai 11:33 var

ls -la /var | grep mail

drwxrwsr-x   2 root mail   4096  8. Jul 16:02 mail

ls -la /var/mail/username

 -rw-rw---- 1 myusername mail 55330396  8. Jul 16:02 /var/mail/myusername

(The term "myusername" is an alias for my real username)

Thanks for any hints.

Best regards
