The description of your telemetry logging problem makes me suspect you're
logging for an admin user, rather than the connecting user. Have you
created a user-named directory underneath <configdirectory>/log/, owned by
the cyrus user?

Do you have an example of your telemetry log? You should be seeing
SELECT/EXAMINE from the client for each poll, and each poll may show up in
a separate <pid> file underneath log/<user>/ depending on whether the
client initiates a new connection when polling.
