We are running 2.1.5 (Yes I know it's *old* !) and
sendmail to handle all the mail for the school.
I suppose it's something I've done but I can't spot it -
anyone know the answer to: no one can delete their
read mail, so they keep getting the same stuff shot
down to them each time they log on, together with
any new stuff.
Inboxes are in /usr/spool/mail, which is owned by
root, with chmod 777. Individual inboxes are owned
by each individual user, with chmod 700. Which is
how I thought I had it to start with, so I don't
know why they can't alter their own file.
Help gratefully received - even if it's something
really stupidly obvious! ;-)
