My guess is that sending an email needs write access to something

This is generally true, there are some optional features which can depend
on write access, such as template editing. Most people do not use this
feature and so we do not generally enable the permissions by default.
For core operations (including backups) all writes are done to whatever is
specified in the temp_dir option in the ledgersmb.conf. If this is not
set, we default to the TEMP environment variable if set, and if not, to
/tmp/ledgersmb. So we do need write access to a temporary directory, and
if you want to open up template editing over the web server you can do that
(most people don't and so because of that we don't set permissions up for
this to work out of the box).
