Well, "conference" isn't a user on the mail system.  As I understood it, when
dealing with shared mailboxes, the postuser as specified in imapd.conf didn't
actually need to exist, and this would allow the Shared mailboxes to exist
outside of the user mailbox heirarchy.

Do I need to have a "Conference" user and put all the shared mailboxes under
that user's mailbox structure?  I suppose I could do that if necessary, but I'd
like to avoid it if possible.
