The file permission problems can be fixed adding the "logcheck" user to groups
"kolab" and "kolab-r", at least with kolab 2.3.4 on Debian Squeeze.

There's a couple of other problems that get in the way of using the standard
logcheck package provided by Debian (I think this also applies to other
distributions):

1. The syntax of log messages generated by kolab applications is non standard:
extra strings like "<debug>", "<notice>" etc are inserted between the hostname
and the service name; thus rendering the standard logcheck rules unusable, and
forcing using the rules published at http://wiki.kolab.org/Logcheck (which BTW
could be improved with detailed installation instructions)

2. Many kolab applications are logging using an excessive verbosity level
(especially some imapd services, using loglevel "debug"); this requires adding
lots of logcheck "ignore" rules; it would be better to lower the default
verbosity level, or at least provide instructions to the admin to do this (I
looked into the wiki, and into the /kolab/etc directory but I couldn't find a
way to do it)
