[Dovecot] question regarding rw-access on mailbox on creation/login (dovecot 1.2.17)

currently I have one new user with a problem. When she logs in to
dovecot with pop3 from her apple mail, dovecot tells problems with the
+w permission.

Error: open(/var/mail/******) failed: Permission denied
(euid=3462(******) egid=548(dozenten) missing +w perm: /var/mail)

/var/mail is rw by root.mail

I cant see why just this particular user has that problem/gets that

AFAIK no one changed any default permissions on directories or set
different users.

What could be "wrong"? Any suggestions is welcome.

	Regards . Götz
