Direct subfolder delivery with LMTP is a little tricky, you basically
have two choices:
- Set up cyrus.conf to start lmptd in pre-authenticated mode (add the -a
parameter), and add an "anyone p" (post) ACL to all subfolders that you
want to be able to deliver directly to.
- Set up Exim to authenticate itself to lmtpd (using PLAIN auth is fine
for this, as long as you ensure that lmtpd is only listening on the
loopback interface), and then add an "authenticated_sender" setting to
your Cyrus delivery transport that forces Exim to supply the appropriate
sender name to lmptd. There are other caveats to this method as well; if
you search the exim-users archive you should find where I posted a
recipe for this last year.
