Quarantine permissions

I am doing a VERY similar thing with PHP.  It will retrieve e-mail from quarantine on a certain date.  I am having trouble with the quarantine directory as well as the daily rotated out syslogs. I have been playing with a utility for Tru64 that allows you to set permissions, regardless of what something else tells it to be.  You might want to see if your OS has an option like that.

  Hi Julian,

  I've just been looking at putting a feature into MailWatch to release quarantined spam and/or blocked files that a few people have requested.

  I've still got a fair bit to do, but do have it working for the most part - but I have to manually keep chown/chmodding the quarantine files as root as Quarantine.pm creates the files/dirs mode 0700 root:root.  To work correctly from MailWatch, ideally the dirs should be 0750 root:apache, and the files 0640 root:apache, but this will vary depending on people's local set-ups.

  Any chance that you could add a couple of options the MailScanner.conf to give the values for 'Quarantine Files Mode', 'Quarantine Dirs Mode' and 'Quarantine Owner/Group' or something similar?

  Kind regards,
