You're mostly there, you just need to knock some sense into 

> system.conf
you mean syslog.conf ? Looks alright.

> xinetd.conf

This tells xinetd to fire up imapd when a connection comes into the imap port.
Don't know why you want that? Just uncomment the imap line in cyrus.conf
and have imapd start at system boot, it'll be more efficient.
This isn't broken, though.

> define(`confLOCAL_MAILER', `cyrusv2')dnl MAILER(`cyrusv2')dnl
> MAILER(local)dnl MAILER(smtp)dnl

This is the bit that needs fixing - you need to tell sendmail 
a) what domains to send to cyrus
b) how to get those mails to cyrus

I don't speak gibberish <g> so don't know what sendmail is doing.
Does it log  deliveries?  Do you have a mail* logfile in /var/log
somewhere? See if that has anything useful in it.

Then google for the error and paste it in blindly :D

Or use a less clanky mail daemon, exim/postfix/qmail/<almost anything else>.
