This _is_ broken. Only ancient versions of Cyrus-imapd ran from inetd,
this configuration is simply nonsense with 2.x.

FC3 ships with a usable postfix rpm which makes installation of a working
MTA/Cyrus-imapd quite easy. At least it was easier for me when I switched
6 years ago. The following in /etc/postfix/main.cf should do it:
mailbox_transport = lmtp:unix:/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp
Sorry, I still can't help with sendmail.
