Hi all. What is the purpose/usage of "p" right?

I mean, I know what it stands for, "post" right, giving permission to 
the user to post a message into that folder. So far, I have been 
thinking of it in terms of mail delivery, since that is what allows 
Cyrus to accept messages and file them into a particular folder. Am I 
right? So, how come only the owner of a mailbox has "p"? Does Cyrus 
switch to the owner, in case of a delivery?

I know I had to give "anyone" "p" on shared folders. I tried giving "p" 
to user "cyrus", but it somehow did not work, not sure why. Delivery is 
done from Sendmail via LMTP and I did setup auth-info, so Sendmail 
should have authenticated itself as user "cyrus". Is that the right way?
