Hi Bakul,

I can not think of one reason why inc shoud be set{g,u}id'ed.

I often switch to another user to see if they've any new email they'd
like to know about.  All I really need for that is setuid inc that scans
the From and Subject fields.

Probably safer to use "sudo -u another inc" or whatever mh command?

And I think Ken's point was about all nmh, as was my reply.

Hmm... Same response:-)
Privilege escalation should be done externally.
