Cyrus IMAP uses LMTP daemon to accept messages. This is intended for 
other components, like MTAs (Sendmail, PostFix, Exim,...) to deliver 
mail to Cyrus.

For your purpose, there is a utility within Cyrus distribution, called 
"deliver" which is a front end to LMTP and compatible with the old 
"deliver" program from Cyrus IMAP 1.x
