You can use the following line in *.mc file you use to generate
It will make sendmail use cyrusv2 insted of local mailer.

I promote a few alternative ways of cyrus and sendmail integration, all of 
them use local mailer for some users and curys||cyrusv2 for other
[ e.g. ]

I do not share the view that "there should be only one local mailer" so do not 
expect me to "overload" local mailer name :)

I think most sites will use only one of the above 3 cyrus mailers - it will be 
cyrus-local or cyrus-dom depending on version of cyrus used.

But I want all cyrus installation to use the same cf/mailer/cyrusv3.m4 file.

* cyrus-local can be used in
* cyrus-dom can be used in mailertable or via
* cyrus-deliver can be used as hook for a custom wrapper program
(e.g. for debugging of for custom filtering)
