Define "write permission" please. Try to keep your definition below 5 pages.

You don't have all the required permissions. 'write permission' is not
really defined. You might be able to create folders. But can you also
create files? Can you move those files? Can you rename folders/files?
Can you change the permissions on those files? Can you change the
attributes? Can you delete them?

you're lucky I already started writing an answer before I read that.
Usually when someone writes the word "ASAP", I immediately move that
mail to the "respond later" folder, or I delete the mail right away -
that depends on my mood.

Don't forget to read the FAQ:
