You need to create a .profile and add that "umask 022" command.

Shalom,

Create a .profile

Copy it from another user or system and add your umask settings.

Re: Set umask to particular user

What shell is the user using?

.profile is good for sh and ksh
.cshrc for csh.

Right:
/usr/newconfig/etc/skel/.profile
For the scummy C shell:
/usr/newconfig/etc/skel/.login

Re: Set umask to particular user

for the user's home dir in their .profile
at the end of .profile add
umask ### ( whatever the mark settings are)
