FAT volume is mounted with user (myuid) read/write rights, no group and
"world" rights. When attemptind to run:
$ claws-mail --alternate-config-dir moutpoint/clawsConfig
the program aborts with:
can't bind to /home/myuid/mountpoint/clawcConfig/claws-mail-1000:
Operation not permitted
Any suggestions?

TIA, Nick M
