Um.. well, none of those statements are true.  Clearly that configuration
worked for you, but we use Cyrus with local-host-names, local aliases and a
very extensive virtusertable.

It sounds like all of these questions were really Sendmail configuration
questions.  (I'm guessing) The problem wasn't Cyrus IMAPd at all, but that
you had issues configuring the MTA to route mail properly.  That really
isn't something that Cyrus documentation should attempt to solve.

That said, as Ken indicated, updates to documentation are always accepted.
I know for certain, because most of my updates were (in spirit if not word
by word).
