Hmm, that might be the best solution then, an upgrade to 1.2. Fwiw, I
also tried NOT using the dovecot-shared file and just relying on the
UMASK=007 directive I put in .procmailrc to create the messages with the
correct permissions..... and that worked! Well, as far as the messages
themselves go. However, the dovecot.index, dovecot.index.log, and
dovecot-uidlist all got rewritten with only user permissions and created
problems. I'm guessing dovecot-shared is the only way to make sure
those files keep their correct permissions?
