No, that's easy to solve. I showed that you easily can write to a
shared folder after adding write access to the group permission. The
issue is that by default the saved files are read/write for the mail
client account user only and not accessible by the user running the
session. Anyway, I solved this issue for you.
Session of user 'rocketmouse', Sylpheed launched as user 'chuser':
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ sudo mkdir /mnt/u1.fat32
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdc8 /mnt/u1.fat32 -o rw,umask=0000
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ sudo mkdir /mnt/u1.fat32/shared_test_folder
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ ls -hAld /mnt/u1.fat32
drwxrwxrwx 5 root root 16K Jan 29 15:49 /mnt/u1.fat32
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ ls -hAld /mnt/u1.fat32/shared_test_folder/
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 16K Jan 29 15:49 /mnt/u1.fat32/shared_test_folder/
I saved something by Sylpheed:
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ ls -hAl /mnt/u1.fat32/shared_test_folder/
-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3.0K Jan 29 15:50 You_have_been_unsubscribed_from_the_Xfce_mailing_list.eml
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ tail -n1 /mnt/u1.fat32/shared_test_folder/You_have_been_unsubscribed_from_the_Xfce_mailing_list.eml
Goodbye from Xfce!

So there's no issue anymore :).
