What are the directory and file permissions of your shared folder,
and do your <permissions> cause an increase or reduction of permissions
compared to the dir and file permissions, or some of both?

   I would just add to this that simply putting a dovecot-acl file in a
   shared folder with "user=<username> <permissions>" does work just fine
   for us (without the complicated setup described below). Our problem is
   that group-based restrictions don't work at all (i.e. "group=<groupname>
   <permissions>", as described in the manual).
   I'm also trying to figure out what the force-group ACL identifier is
   supposed to mean.
