it's interesting and I have done that in the past with uw-imap but I
never had any shared folders in uw-imap.

I can't see the logic of automatically taking people's inbox
automatically as ham...

- they may not have cleared their inbox of spam in which case, spam
would accumulate as ham

- they may not be checking their email at all and what ever is in their
inbox would be whatever is there

I can see the issue of a folder that they couldn't access prompting
calls but if it's a public folder that they can post and delete from,
that seems to solve their issues.

I guess I'm no closer to the answer here
