No, the default permissions are proper!

Hongwei, we had exactly that topic on Thursday last week and I explained
it to you. So what did you change and how do you use mail? Which pine
(source or packager and version) do you use? How else do users read
mail? Are the log entries caused by users using pine and a different
mail client same time?
