You haven't said if you performed any network tests. Both postfix & cyrus
should not mangle mail bodies in any way, so the corruption can either
appear on the sending side (how were you sending those test mails?) or on
the receiving side. If you have two machines, they must surely be connected
with different network cables to different switches (or at least different
ports on the switch), so try to replace some parts of the nic-cable-switch
chain and see if it helps.

Also, I've seen on-disk corruptions with certain combinations of
motherboard chipset and ide controllers, so be sure the system you've moved
those disks to is different enough to count that out.
