yep, that's definitely the cause of it, but looking through the git history, it seems to have no clear justification. do other LDA programs behave this way? is there a reason to not 0666 or 0644 ? seems like the umask is where people should be making these choices, and mail being delivered doesn't necessarily need this kind of lockdown. we're running into this when looking at a mailing list archiver -- i want messages to be delivered via "notmuch insert" as the mailbox owner. but the mailbox viewer is going to be a different user, and they need read-only access to the archive. instead, they're completely locked out. am i missing something? --dkg
