You've created a bulletin board. This is basically a mailbox that isn't
associated with an email address. The lrs permissions are default for
any mailbox outside the user hierarchy

It's not counted as a default user so it won't be recognized by cyrus as
that email address. IIRC you need to sent to +office at domain1.com, for
more about this look at bulletin boards

This is because you client is looking under user/office1 not
group/office1 the only way to access it is to use it like a shared
mailbox (because thats what it is)

It doesn't have to be group it could be sdjfh for all cyrus would care.
The only special hierarchy is the user hierarchy the others can be
created however you want.
I hope thats been of some help.
