It might be an idea to put shared mailboxes under a separate tree; say,
'public', rather than under a user folder.

I think the 'anyone' ACL works as a catchall, rather than being added to
user permissions. So I expect user 'jwilliams' was being given post-only

If I'm correct, you should be more successful with the ACLs:

anyone lr
jwilliams lrp

As you may have guessed by the less-than-certain tone of my message, I
don't do much with Cyrus ACLs. Nonetheless, I think this the likely
situation. I'd have to R the right bit of TFM to be sure and it's 2:00am
here (can't sleep) so I think I'll just suggest this as a line of
enquiry and hope it's of some help.
