	Thanks so Joe Hrbek [jhrbek at gplsinc.com] I've resolved the issue.
To follow up, here was my 'lm' and 'lam':

localhost> lm
INBOX.Drafts (\NonExistent \HasNoChildren)
INBOX.Sent (\NonExistent \HasNoChildren)
INBOX.Trash (\NonExistent \HasNoChildren)
user/jpt (\HasChildren)
user/jpt/Drafts (\HasNoChildren)
user/jpt/Sent (\HasNoChildren)
user/jpt/Trash (\HasNoChildren)
user/s.schahn (\HasChildren)
user/s.schahn/Trash (\HasNoChildren)
user/s.schahn/test (\HasNoChildren)

localhost> lam *
  jpt lrswipcda
  jpt lrswipcda
  jpt lrswipcda
  jpt lrswipcda
  s.schahn lrswipcda
  s.schahn lrswipcda
  s.schahn lrswipcda
localhost> lam INBOX*
localhost> lam INBOX.Drafts
anyone lrswipcda
localhost> lam INBOX.Sent
anyone lrswipcda
localhost> lam INBOX.Trash
anyone lrswipcda

The original problem is that the 'INBOX.*' for everyone was sitting at the
top level. Joe Hrbek inquired about the ACL and observed that user cyrus
needed permissions to the user's mailbox. Mail is now correctly stored in
the individual mailboxes as opposed to attempting to store everyone's
incoming/trash/drafts/sent mail in a shared top level.

BTW: I have been using cyradm to create the mailboxes. I will now look into
why cyrus isn't given permission when the toplevel user mailbox is created.

Thanks Joe!!!

I'm nto sure I understand the problem.  This might be an issue with 
squirrelmail, but I don't know.  If you can post the output of cyradm 
lm, we might be able to help.
