> Roey, you can do a chron to chmod the downloaded directory.

Did you mean using cron?
I'm not very familiar with that, but as far as I know cron jobs can
run at specifc times, not on specifc events.
Creating a cron job that runs every 5 minutes for chmod sounds a bit
like a waste of CPU, and the effect will occur every 5 minutes, not
immidietly when a file is downloaded.
umask command seems to do the trick. Thanks.
