Err it should be "saslpasswd2" - otherwise you are using a SASLv1 linked 
imap server, e.g. Cyrus 1.6.x...

fallback_transport = lmtp:unix:/path/to/your/lmtp/socket/lmtp

if you want to get mail delivered in your cyrus imap spool and local unix 
users will still have their /var/spool/mail-Files.

The Cyrus mail system does NOT use normal mailfiles, it has its own spool.
