Posting to shared folders - clarification and help needed

I'm trying to setup shared folders on my IMAP server and I'm almost
there. After a lot of fiddling about I have a working configuration,
like this. I have two folder hierarchies:
Also in sendmail I created a virtusertab entry mapping to
"cyrus+shared.informatika.official at IMAP" (this is mapped via mailertab
to "cyrusv2" mailer).
In "shared.*" I have created "shared.informatika.official" and setup the
localhost> lam shared.*
-> postman lrswipcda
-> cyrus lrswipcda
-> anyone lp
Take a special note of the UIDs I've marked with "->". My idea was to
allow only authorized personel access to this folder (official mailbox
of our department). Submission to this folder failed.
Then I tried adding privileges to user "cyrus", hoping it would solve my
problem - no go.
Then I noticed in my mail.log this:
Jan 15 19:22:13 Uprava lmtpunix: executed
Jan 15 19:22:13 Uprava lmtpunix: accepted connection
Jan 15 19:22:13 Uprava lmtpunix: lmtp connection preauth'd as postman
Jan 15 19:22:13 Uprava lmtpunix:
verify_user(shared.informatika.official) failed: Mailbox does not exist
So, I added user "postman" all rights - still no go.
Then I added "anyone all" and the submission went on OK.
But this is not what I want. I don't want "anyone" all access to this
folder. As a matter of fact, I'd like noone except the authorized users
to even know of this mailbox. I managed to cut down access rights to
just "List, Post" (maybe I can drop "List").
I would like to know if there is a way to use user "cyrus" for the
submission. I noticed that message from LMTP Daemon. Should I arrange
for Sendmail to authenticate to LMTP as cyrus? Will I be able then to
drop "anyone lp" and have just "cyrus p" in ACLs for this folder?
