My fault, I just didn't have enough time to figure the correct  
vocabulary for my goals. This makes googling information very hard  
too :(

for me it works fine without a postuser (are there any drawbacks in  
not using a postuser?)
"+shared at" works fine and as far as I understood postuser  
would just be some artificial username to prepend to shared mailboxes...

Ok now user+mailbox posting works fine (where user is an existing  
user in cyrus and mailbox is a "subfolder" in "users"s mailbox)

Ok, to clear things up I have these mailboxes:> lam shared at
user at lrswipcda
anyone p> lam user/user at
user at lrswipcda
cyrus lrswipcda

No I write a mail to "user+shared at" and I want the mail to  
be posted to "shared at" I do need to use sieve (anything  
else?) to have this mail posted to "shared at" instead of  
somewhere in "user at"


If "user+shared at" exists cyrus would put the message there  
(given the ACLs are correct)
If only "user at" exists cyrus would put the message there

Hope I could express myself a bit clearer now...
