Description mwisnicki+freebsd 2015-08-06 05:49:07 UTC
Local mail delivery needs write access to /var/mail to create lock files.

Evolution has an sgid helper for that (libexec/camel-lock-helper*) however on freebsd it's group owner is "wheel" while /var/mail has group owner "mail".

Executing `chgrp mail /usr/local/libexec/camel-lock-helper*` fixes that.

URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/393653

Log:
  Make the camel-lock-helper-1.2 application part of the mail group and set sgid.

  This allows evolution do do local mail delivery again.
