message line endings on MacOSX -- UNIX vs DOS? referred from postfix

i've built cyrus-imap-2.1.20 & postfix-2.2-20041221+tls-nonprod on osx 10.3.7
i'm using cyrus-imap as an external message store, and local deliveries are
handled stricly via LMTP listening on an IP Domain socket ...
using a text editor, i note that messages (currently sent FROM a virtual
domain/account TO a virtual domain/account on the same server ...) show up in
the message store where/as expected, but have DOS-style (^M) line-endings.
i'd expect that messages are stored in the OS's 'native' format -- for OSX,
though my initial trudge thru the forums led me to believe that "its' the
'job of the MTA' to convert line-endings to native format", postfix's author
kindly pointed out on the postfix forum that when using LMTP delivery:
> In that case, Postfix delivers no mail to the mailbox, and all
> questions about POSTFIX MAILBOX FORMAT become completely irrelevant.
which leaves me with cyrus-imap. (it's always the "OTHER one" ... argh!)
anyway, can/does cyrus-imap store/process msgs w/ UNIX line endings? where/how
do i specify such?
