Another method of Cyrus IMAP and Sendmail integration is described at
* Real Time Cyrus (and Sendmail) Integration Version 2

Unlike the method mentioned by Rob it makes sendmail capable of rejecting 
messages to non existing cyrus mailboxes in reply to "RCPT TO:" [ No "accept 
now, send bounce later" ]. RTCyrus2 uses "socket map protocol" supported by 
Cyrus-2.2.3+ and sendmail-8.13.0+ (sendmail-8.12 requires patching).
[ The latest versions: Cyrus-2.2.7, Sendmail 8.13.1 ]

The link below describes more methods:

P.S. Solution with similar functionality for exim uses LMTP callouts insted of 
socke map:
