As you suspect yourself, it might have something to do with permissions.

My guess would be that it is the permissions or ownership of the files
in out.going. This because if it was the permissions of the directories,
you should see am error message.

Of course I don't have an example here right now but owner should be
news:news, and the owner should be allowed to read the files.

This has nothing to do with the problem but is a cosmetical glitch of 1.9.2.
