Re: [Evolution-hackers] sharing IMAP folders between users

I don't think permissions are set via the IMAP protocol (in fact, I know
they aren't - IMAP doesn't specify a mechanism for this), however, IMAP
*does* provide 3 namespaces: User, Shared, Other

The default paths for these namespaces can be fetched via the NAMESPACE
command after logging in.

Perhaps you are just thinking of the Shared namespace rather than the
user actually changing perms on his folders. As far as I know, there is
no way for a client to change these perms... - the way it works is just
that if a folder is in the Shared hierarchy, *everyone (where everyone
is whoever the sysadmin gave perms to I would imagine) can see it. Else,

Unfortunately, Evolution does not currently suppoprt this. We plan on
adding support for this soon tho.
