Refuse over quota mail

The sendmail bounce is being generated because Cyrus-IMAPd refused the
message.  Are you wanting to have sendmail drop the message if the
mailbox is overquota? In most cases this is usually undesirable as there
would be no notification to the sender of the message why the mail
failed.. I'm not sure how/if you can get sendmail to check cyrus' quota,
but that is most likely the direction you are needing to go toward,
google should be of help now.
