My RPMs are for RedHat / Fedora Core Linux, I doubt they work on SuSE. I
think you should try the SuSE rpms. They sell several Cyrus-IMAPd based
products so I expect their cyrus* packages to be okay to start with.
I don't know about their postfix package but if it's like those from
RedHat, it possibly lacks all the mysql/pgsql stuff so you may check the
postfix site to learn where to find rpms.
