    I am using a mail server with Linux , IMAP protocol,
    currently when the mail is updated (receive new mail and the mail will put in /var/spool/mail), the read-only right in the other group is reset to null,

    I need to execute a command 'chown o+r mailfile' to assign read only right again. (i need to copy this file from PC for backup purpose)
    How can I change the system to prevent the read only right being reset ?

    The linux version:
    Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux)
    Kernel 2.6.18-1.2239.fc5 on an i686

    I can setup a crontab, but do anyone know how to change the settings in the mail software?
