    I have an account that needs to have the GNU mailutils installed to make a script work (also needs maildrop installed). What's the best way to go about this? Should the user just build the tools in a local directory and then use an appropriate path? Thanks in Advance....

    NO! Not possible. I suggest you read about these two applications to know what they are, and what they do:
    Maildrop: http://www.courier-mta.org/?maildrop.html
    GNU Mailutils: http://www.gnu.org/software/mailutils/manual/html_chapter/mailutils_toc.html
    Good luck!

    I know what the two packages do. Why did you say "No. Not Possible"? The account user needs access to reformime, dotlock, messages and readmsg. None of these tools are being used in a malicious manner - there's just a cron job parsing and replying to inbound emails for one their email addresses. What's is the best way to allow binaries of these 4 programs.
