Yes, I am logged in with "Administrator"-privileges.
The daemon seems to run the queue happily, there are no complaints in
the log files and the emails are all sent correctly, as far as I can
tell. (And nobody has complained yet that they didn't recieve email
from me.)

Yep, that's a cut&paste-job. The problem has ceased (at least for my
eyes) since downgrading, but the ownership and chmod-state of those
files has always been the same, so I made the directory listing up -
obviously rather badly. :-]

Let's say I ought to, because I'm member of group "administrators",
and the RestoreFile-privilege is granted to "backup-operators"(*) and
I will experiment with the setting of this privilege, maybe I stumble
upon something.

(*) I'm German and have a German Windows-Version, thus I don't know
the correct English term

Thanks for your help,
