Description

mailpost tries to store its message ID database in INN's pathtmp, but since it's usually running as the mail system (often daemon) rather than as news, this fails.

(In [9830]) mailpost: change the default location of the database and the temporary files

Add new -t flag to specify the default directory to use for temporary files.

Also change the default location of the persistent database from pathtmp
to patdb. As a matter of fact, mailpost tries to store its Message-ID
database in INN's pathtmp, but since it's usually running as the mail
system (often daemon) rather than as news, this fails.

Check that the directories are writable when mailpost is run, and
otherwise die with an error.
