You need to set 777 on their host directory too surely.

Subject: Reading files in one username From Another

For my xml2brl program, I need to read xml files on one user name, where I 
receive mail, from another username, where I do software development. I've 
set the mode on the files to 666, but when I try to read them from the 
second username 
I get a permission-denied message. What else do i have to do?
