Ok, on further testing today, adding "anyone p" does make it deliver ok.

This is wierd though because the  command to deliver the mail does 
specify my user acl (-a argument to deliver) so why wouldn't this work?

My procmail log reports like this:
procmail: Executing 
"/usr/cyrus/bin/deliver,-r,xxx at,-a,john,-m,,john"

cyradm lam shows has p rights (amongst others) for 
user john.

Setting "anyone" rights doesn't feel right... what now?
