I have the same issue but with 2.1.2 using postfix 2.0.9.
I have tried all the permission changes suggested.
On the lmtp socket (/var/imap/socket/lmtp) and I have added postfix and
cyrus to the mail group. I changed the permissions on the /var/imap and
/var/imap/sockets to 770 but still the same issues.
Any other ideas?
