why don't you just take all rights away. 

via cyradmn it would be:

setaclmailbox user.fred.INBOX fred none


setaclmailbox user.fred.INBOX fred -lrswipcda

the A or Administer acl flag is for allowing a user to set their own acl's so, 
if you want to just take that priviledge away, just remove the a flag from 
their rights.
