chgrp mail pine (or chown root.mail pine)
chmod 2755 pine (or 2711, doesn't matter)

> Ever since I upgraded to pine 4.03 (and now 4.04 and 4.05), it's
> been complaining that the mail spool is vunerable and it needs
> 1777 protection. I changed the permissions on the mail spool and
> the message goes away but I'm left wondering....
> I used to have it the permissions/ownerships
> drwxrwxr-x 2 root mail
> What is wrong with this and what makes this vunerable???
> That and do I really want to allow random files to be created in
> my mail spool?
