I think I missed the start of this thread, but under Cyrus, using IMAP to
access a mailbox, you have the following ACLs:

l	Look up the name of the mailbox but not it's contents
r	Read the contents of the mailbox
w	change status flags
i 	insert a message
d	delete a message

among other, from this you could give some one rwi, so that message status
is preserved (i.e. seen, reply etc) but they can't delete the message.
