Cyrus is logging everything to local6 syslog facility. You could 
reconfigure your syslogd: "local6.*  /var/log/imapd.log". While keeping 
on eye on /var/log/imapd.log, you should have a look at /var/log/mail as 

AFAIK, maildrop belongs to postfix not to cyrus ?!
If this is the case you can't configure maildrop directly but you could 
start postfix.   ;-)

I you want more help please post a "egrep '(panic|error|failure)' 
/var/log/mail" first.
