Shared folders question...

I've not seen anything per se myself. We've set up a shared folder
service here at NCSU. Things to be aware of are the form of the
email address to deliver to the shared mailbox/folder, permissions
to allow the mail delivery to occur, ie. give the user anyone an
ACL with at least p in it. Set ACL's for additional users as necessary.
And make sure that clients know how to configure their email programs.

As part of the service we provide an alias for people to use that
maps onto the delivery address to the shared folder.
For example:

ece-admin at -> bb+ece.admin at
