Hi Baltasar,

I don't fully understand the above.

Say I want the following shared folders: support at, 
admins at

I would create those mailboxes with cyradm:
cm "support at"
cm "admins at"
sam "support at" ?? p
sam "admins at ?? p

I've tried user cyrus but that doesn't work.  Lmtp says:
Aug 14 23:09:26 oeral mail2/lmtp[10712]: 
verify_user(!support) failed: Mailbox does not exist

Setting 'p' for 'anyone', works.  But I wonder if that is safe enough?

In your case you would make a mailbox 'shared at', right?  At 
let the users mail to 'shared+subfolder at".  Correct?
