I use this configuration
postfix, cyrus, sieve to send sms-mails

We have clear this problem sieve and a c-programm was make an lookup in 
a mysql-table.

The cyrus put the mails in users-mailbox, sieve forward this mails to 
123_<user> (this is a lokal-domain)
spool at have an catch_all entry.
The 123_<user> stay after forward in the x-original-to:
The c-programm scann this mailbox all 10 sec. and check the x-original-to:
With this infos make the c-programm an mysql-lookup and get the info for 
this mail.
We have 4 different ways, 1) forward the mail to sms only with subject, 
2) forward the mail with 160 characters and so far......

The c-programm send  this mail with the infos from the mysql-db and 
modified body like

user: smsuser
pass: smspassgateway
and so far.....
to the sms-gateway
this scans the information in the mail-body and send this maisl to the
