Thank you for your answer.  However, I have a few
further questions about this.

Is LMTP the preferred way?  I'm actually upgrading my
server and I thought that the old configuration can
work.  Well, it seems to work, but after some time I
notice the "temporary failure" errors.

What is the effect of having cyrus deliver with no
"one" recipient at a time?  Will the email be lost?

Is the postfix "cyrus_destination_recipient_limit = 1"
the correct one to put, or it should be the

I've set the cyrus_destination_recipient_limit = 1 in
postfix, but now there're more "temporary failure",
although later on, I saw some of them being sent:

Sep  6 11:02:51 mail postfix/pipe[11409]: 17EA6A3CF:
to=<xxx at xxx.xx>, relay=cyrus, delay=1237, status=sent

Why is the temporary failure still there?

Thank you.
