I am running rsync daemon with a specific user on Ubuntu machine. The problem is that since daemon users don't login, the umask set for the user is the default one.

How do I set umask for the user in the daemon process?

There is a UMask= directive in the [Service] section. Note that it's really UMask, with a capital M.
