A shared folder is a special type of imap folder that allows multiple users to access it (read/write) simultanously without sharing the same login-name/password. Any combination of the basic privileges "Read-access", "Write-access", "Delete-access" can be assigned to individual users. Different users can have a different set of privileges for any given shared folder.
