Thanks for the responses.

Touching a file after setting permissions does not work. Asterisk only
looks at the new file only, not all the files in the directory.
Restarting asterisk does work, but dont want to do this.
Best way i think would be, as suggested by JG, to sync in a tmp directory
and at the time of switch-over mv to outgoing directory.
