Cyrus stores its emails on the local filesystem. It cannot store mail
remotely in a separate IMAP server (Cyrus is already an IMAP server).
However, it seems possible that you can reconfigure Kolab to use your ISPs
IMAP server instead of the locally installed Cyrus IMAP server. I've
never used Kolab, so I don't know how you might go about doing this or if
Kolab supports this.
