Hi all:

I have a problem running my dovecot server. I get the following error message 
when trying to get mail from my account with INBOX in /var/spool/mail/tanim 
(username tanim).

Nov 22 19:23:00 phobos imap(tanim): file_lock_dotlock() failed with mbox 
file /var/spool/mail/tanim: Permission denied

What permissions should I set for the mailbox? I am running
