Maybe a silly question but still, security has to be as high as
possible, so, here it is:

I installed procmail and got the fbsd warning about the program running
with set user and group ID (root/mail) known as a security risk.
What about this message? Procmail has persmission 6755. Is it nessacery
for the prog to be world readable/executable? do I need to set things
different or do I see ghosts? :-))
