You should send mails to cyrus+shared.announcements at, and 
setup "cyrus" to be "postuser" in imapd.conf. And, yes, user "anonymous" 
must have "p" access to that folder.

Guys, anyone has any info on setting up an authenticated connection to 
LMTP and using THAT user for posting to shared mailboxes? I'm not very 
fond of user anonimous being able to post anything on the system.
