It is more your Postfix does not know about the different mail storage
with Cyrus-IMAPd (Postfix uses a local mailer like procmail; you will
have to migrate mail which got in falsely so far). So tell Postfix to
hand over the mail to Cyrus-IMAPd using the LMTP socket. Several
examples are to be found using google.
