The simplest method is to make sendmail deliver messages via standard local
mailer and use ~/.procmailrc to redirect messages to cyrus using "deliver"
program from cyrus package.
There are multitude of cyrus&sendmail integration methods.
A few are described at: http://anfi.homeunix.net/sendmail/#cyrus
e.g. it is possible to select cyrus mailer *after* alias and ~/.forward
expansion. It will allow users with OS account to use procmail for
processing recived messages. Users without ~/.forward file and existing
corresponding cyrus mailobx will get their mail delivered to cyrus mailbox.
