The hard part is what source do you use for your users?
Are they listed in the local  /etc/passwd file, are they in
an LDAP compliant directory? Is this cfagent.conf file going to
run on one mail server or many ?

If it is one mail server then you can make a list variable
myname = ( name01:name02:name03 )

Then the following can be used

#This would take care of the files being in compliance.
files:

/var/spool/mail/${myname}
        owner=${myname}
        mode=660
        action=warnall
        syslog=true

To iterate over a list, see the following url:
http://www.cfengine.org/docs/cfengine-Tutorial.html#Iterating-over-lists

#Next comes seeing if an extra file is in the directory which should not be in the directory.

/var/spool/mail/${myname}
        exclude=${myname}
        action=warnall
        syslog=true

I have not tested this last one. Give it a try.
May need to define an "elsedefine=class" to do more here.

Hello!  I hope you all are doing well.

How can you check all of the following things in /var/spool/mail:
  * the only files in /var/spool/mail are usernames
    (WarnNonUserMail, I'm guessing)
  * the files are owned by the correct user,
    w/ appropriate 0660 permissions

Thanks very much!  I'll be happy to add answers to cfwiki.org.

Yours,
John
