I have a question. I've created some shared folders with cyradm an given
my test user p - post acl on the folder. How do I post messages into
that folder. I saw some postings on the internet that explained I should
use a (+) between the folders in the hierarchy:

ex. public+announce at

When I read the maillog from sendmail it says unknown user and it is
retured to me.

May 30 10:39:32 mail sm-mta[1171]: i4UEdV8x001169:
to=<public+announce at>, delay=00:00:01,
xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=cyrusv2, pri=30650, relay=localhost, dsn=5.1.1,
stat=User unknown
May 30 10:39:32 mail sm-mta[1171]: i4UEdV8x001169: i4UEdW8x001171: DSN:
User unknown

I realize that this is somewhat dependent on the capabilities of the
mail client, but it seems to be reaching the cyrus-imap server just not
being resolved. I also tryed:


Any suggestions?
