Slypheed error: "Can't write file"
Topic: Slypheed error: "Can't write file"

Posted by jhsu on Oct. 23 2007,05:05I backed up my email files (messages and configuration settings under .slypheed). I can read all of my old messages in the folders just fine.
But when I try to download new messages, Sylpheed begins to download messages, but before it finishes downloading even the first message, I get the error message "can't write file".
What's wrong? What do I have to change to get Sylpheed to download my messages like it's supposed to?
Posted by Juanito on Oct. 23 2007,05:13Are the permissions on /home/dsl/.sylpheed (.slypheed?) still dsl.staff? Is hda3 full?

I opened up all the permissions (for both the Mail directory and the .sylpheed directory), but Sylpheed STILL refuses to download my messages. hda3 is not full - I only have a small fraction of it filled.
Posted by roberts on Oct. 23 2007,15:41Typically Sylpheed writes mail messages in the Mail/ directory structure. The perms should be dsl.staff
Posted by jhsu on Oct. 24 2007,04:28Thanks. I got it working. The user has to be set to dsl, and the group has to be set to staff. I also found that I had to select the "Recurse directories" option when setting the user and group.
