First of all, sieve doesn't check these rights when it is performing a
fileinto (atleast, not in the case of user mailboxes).

Second, you can allow SMTP AUTHed users to post to a mailbox without
allowing everyone to post to the mailbox, just set 'p' for just that user.

Unless you mean 'allow sendmail to post to the mailbox, but don't give
the userid anyone the "p" right' which doesn't make a lot of sense (since
LMTP is the only thing that checks the 'p' right).
