This is a bad idea, or at least I don't like it.

The way to do it is to designate a "postuser" (most commonly "cyrus") in Cyrus imapd.conf. Then you can submit mails via SendMail or PostFix, via virtual users:

paul-group at    cyrus+paul

Most commonly, though, people use "shared/..." hirearchy for shared folders, so it would translte to:

paul-group at    cyrus+shared.paul

or paul-group at    cyrus+shared/paul (if you are using UNIX hierarchy separator).

Sure. Sieve has very little to do with this.
