Apple butchers software and man pages, however, most of the upstream  
function still exists and work as intended.

This is what I have on listen:

        listen=<no default>
             The  UNIX  or  internet socket to listen on.  This  
string field is
             required and takes one of the following forms:

             [ host : ] port

 From this I can't see how to have 2 instances of imap running  
because it doesn't show two imapd conf file so what you suggest  
doesn't help me.

As well EXAMPLE only gives the following.

        SERVICES {
          imap         cmd="imapd" listen="imap" prefork=1
          imaps        cmd="imapd -s" listen="imaps" prefork=0
          lmtpunix     cmd="lmtpd" listen="/var/imap/socket/lmtp"
          lmtp         cmd="lmtpd" listen="localhost:lmtp"

I have no clue what would be valid based on what I have in man pages  
because I don't have much in there so if someone has some entries in  
their cyrus.conf file that they'd share I'd be most grateful.

An explanation wont help, I don't have the reference material, from a  
two or more IP example I could make it work but with nothing to look  
at I'm lost.
