D'uh, I totally overlooked that these have to be created
manually. So now I've created these on the toplevel, and in every
mailbox below and I've changed all dovecot-acl files from
authenticated lr
authenticated lrs
and restarted dovecot, yet the mailboxes are still marked
read-only and setting the seen flag is ignored. Somehow I thought
I did the same change to the acl files and it worked as expected
(except the per-user flag of course). Anything else I have to do
to allow seen flags to be set?
