Actually, loaonfficers is just a 'group' of employees who are going to need 
access to a shared folder of some sort to view and post messages as needed. 
I'm going to have a total of about 4-5 different 'groups' of employees who 
will have seperate folders/bulletin boards.

The thing I really need is a way for people in these groups the ability to 
just view messages as needed by sending or moving messages into the 
specified folder. Still working on the kinks and stuff as well as fine 
tuning everything

Hmm. From the sound of it, that will require some further research and 
testing. As it stands right now, I have smtp-auth setup through postfix in 
a chrooted environment. Now, I need to figure out how to set postfix to 
either pass AUTH or authenticate to lmtpd...

I appreciate the help.
