Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have setup my mail system using fetchmail, postfix, procmail and courier imap, soon I am going to add spamassassin.
Everything is going really well and doing everything exactly as I want it to.
Now I want to add in shared folders. I read the Courier web site documentation but it left me as confused as anyone can get without passing out.
I created a user called test and the maildir for that user using
'maildirmake -S Maildir'. That creates the maildir so that you can share it.
I then created a folder that could be shared using
'maildirmake -s write -f pm Maildir'. That creates a folder in the maildir called 'pm' that can be shared and has full access for everyone.
I then went to my normal user and added the share to the maildir using
'maildirmake --add pmtest=/home/users/test/Maildir/.pm Maildir'. This creates a symbolic link in my users maildir (called pmtest) to the shared folder called 'pm'.
I then use procmail to sort the mail based on the subject to the shared folder called 'pm'.
My problem is that when mail is created in that folder it has permissions of -rw-------
How can I make it so that files that are created in that directory are created with permissions of -rw-rw----?
Has anyone setup Courier IMAP andf been able to understand what the instructions are about and shared folders successfully?
