So then I tried to create a shared folder, specifc to a domain, like shared/News at, but the same results. I've tried sending to: +shared/News at, shared/News at, and shared+News at   Don't know what I'm doing wrong this time.

Based on the value of postuser and the name of your mailbox, the address 
which you would need to send to is:

shared+shared/News at

The first "shared" is because of your value of postuser.  Everything 
after the "+" is the mailbox name.  Note that you could remove the value 
of postuser (thus making it "") and post to:

+shared/News at

Or you could leave postuser alone and have your toplevel mailbox be 
News at and post to:

shared+News at
