Response to: Mail.app doesn't work

It worked nicely for me then the April Security Update did something on one of my machines and I get an error message in the console like this:


2002-04-10 20:27:59.442 Mail[1586] *** mkstemp(/var/mail/sfn.lock.tmp.XXXXXX): Permission denied
2002-04-10 20:27:59.444 Mail[1586] Cannot fetch from read-only/locked spool file /var/mail/sfn


Permissions are:
drwxrwxr-x 3 root mail 58 Apr 10 21:31 .
drwxr-xr-x 19 root wheel 602 Apr 10 18:57 ..
-rwx------ 1 username mail 0 Apr 10 21:31 username


Anyone have an idea here?
