it's impolite to steal someone else's thread - you should start your own
threads rather than clicking 'reply' to someone else's message and
changing the subject.

- users' mail directory is INBOX

- did you make the necessary changes to postfix/ to reflect
lmtp delivery? 

I have this...
lmtp      unix  -       -       n       -       -       lmtp

cyrus     unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
  user=cyrus argv=/usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/deliver -e -r ${sender} -m
${extension} ${user}
(2 lines)

what about your maillog - what does it say about handling incoming mail?
