Thanks, yes, I figured it out from a similar discussion going on in here
last week. I just created an empty "dovecot-shared" file in that mailbox
and it worked like a charm. Checked the docs later - the phrasing
that mentions this file is not too clear, maybe adding a note like "make
sure you create this (empty) file in the mailbox" would help.

Anyway, from the info I gathered, I assume my concept of providing
a shared INBOX should work with no problems which is great.
