We run postfix and cyrus on separate machines.  On the cyrus machine, we 
use tcp-wrappers to permit lmtp connections from only our postfix machines 
(so malicious users cannot inject messages directly).

I don't see a reason to encrypt the lmtp connection, but maybe that's a 
requirement in your case.
