Does Maildrop require Admin rights?

Hi,

I cannot get the scripts to install but the account I use on my Mac is not an admin account.  When I su as an admin account (in terminal) and run Maildrop, the scripts install okay.  The problem is that the scripts get installed for the admin user and not the user I normally use.  Are there any work-arounds in order to get the scripts to install as my (non-admin) user?  Am I missing some obvious step?

Thanks,

The scripts all should get installed under the users home directory, so shouldn't require admin rights to do that. I've seen a couple of cases where the directory permissions under scripts are a little screwy which can cause problems with the scripts install, you might want to check that.
