I currently redirect stderr to /dev/null because the actual number of
these "ignoring non-mail file" notices is much higher, but that means I
don't get to see actual errors which is quite a disadvantage.

An option like --veryquiet or --errorsonly would be helpful, but I can
understand you asking if it would be worth the effort. For somebody like
me who uses Dovecot as a backend it would be. ;-)

Ah! The post-new hook called umask and caused the output. Thanks.
