Problem getting email posted to a virtual mailbox domain

I am using cyrus on freeBSD 5.2 with postfix.
Mail to default domain seems to work ok. Mail to virtual mailbox user
'example at foo.bar' gets put in '/var/mail/foo.bar/example', but logging
in with pop or imap doesn't retrieve the mail. There's no error
messages during delivery or pop login.
I have postfix with virtual_mailbox_maps showing example at foo.bar as
mapping to /var/mail/foo.bar/example so I can see how the mail reaches
that place, but no combination of imapd.conf settings that I've tried
seems to let cyrus find it there. Maybe it's a stupid question, but I
somehow don't understand how to set partition-default so that it works
without permission errors -- it was set to /var/spool/imap which
contained user/ and domain/ but I can't see how to mesh these with
It may be rather dumb of me but I've spent a lot of hours trying a lot
of permutations of directories etc. without getting this to work, so
even if it's obvious I'd appreciate any suggestions.
