I have a file which was saved to a CIFS share from Outlook. The file permissions are 777, so I should be able to read the file from the Linux host the file goes to. However when I try, I get file permission errors (unable to read the file). If I have the root user change the permissions (say from 777 to 775), I am then able to read the file as expected. I verified that I have permission to the directory, so that isn't the problem.
BSD_6.3  $ ls -l hwmconfigs.rar -rwxrwxrwx** 1 root wheel 41574 Jul 27 17:55 hwmconfigs.rar BSD_6.3  $ file hwmconfigs.rar hwmconfigs.rar: writable, executable, regular file, no read permission
Has anyone experienced a similar issue. Any ideas how to get MS Outlook to put the file so that an unprivileged user can read it?
