We've always used the 'anyone p' right for this purpose, that's why I 
didn't notice anything ... I just set up a mailbox to test this:

cyrus.rrz.uni-koeln.de> lam posting
anonymous lrsp
anyone lrs

Not surprisingly, the result is the same one you observed: it only works 
when 'anyone' has the 'p' right. (we're running a 32bit system)

So where does it say that the 'anonymous p' right is *supposed* to work? 
The only reference I've been able to find is overview.html, and that isn't 
particularly clear. What's the harm in granting 'anyone p' instead?
