Right and what I'm saying is if IncomingWorkUser is not set but
RunAsUser is, it should set RDUSER to the value of RunAsUser and only
default to "mail" if neither is set.

This is already moot for me because I have added a setting for
IncomingWorkUser to my conf.d/local, so if you think it's good as is, it
will work for me.
